WWF-Australia’s Dr Prishani Vengetas recently visited our partners Friends of the Koala, Byron Bay Wildlife Hospital and Currumbin Wildlife Hospital to assist with helping wildlife impacted by the devastating floods in the Northern Rivers region.

 

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 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, NSW

• Border Ranges Richmond Valley Landcare Network, NSW
