The effects of the devastating floods on Southeast QLD and Northern NSW are still being felt and will continue to be for months to come, both for the people living there and the animals that call the regions home. WWF-Australia’s vet and Wildlife Recovery Project Coordinator Dr Prishani Vengetas met with Dr Bree Talbot, one of the vets at Byron Bay Wildlife Hospital, to help with the rescue and rehabilitation of impacted wildlife.

 

 

 

When a disaster at the scale of these latest floods happens, one thing is clear - no one organisation can meet the needs of all wildlife across the country. That’s why WWF-Australia has partnered with incredible groups in all states and territories to ensure help is received quickly and wherever it’s needed most.


Emergency funds have already been deployed for immediate wildlife rescue, care and recovery through our partners:
• Byron Bay Wildlife Hospital, NSW

• Currumbin Wildlife Hospital, Qld
• Friends of the Koala, NSW
• Sydney Wildlife, NSW
• Ipswich Koala Protection Society, Qld.

Funds are also supporting emergency landscape project recovery with partners:
• Bangalow Koalas
• Border Ranges Richmond Valley Landcare Network

This is just the beginning and we will continue to direct emergency funds as the situation unfolds.
