Thank you so much for donating and entering in our Kangaroo naming Competition.
We have chosen the name Dell for our little girl, who is now starting to hop around for short periods before going back into her pouch. She weighs 2105gms, double the weight she was when she came into Sydney Wildlife's care.
We will give you an update on Dell's progress in our next project report.
The rehabilitation area has progressed well with the fence now being completed and shade cloth attached, and shelters built for the macropods (Wallabies and Kangaroos) to escape the elements. We need to attach shade cloth as a visual barrier, otherwise macropods when frightened could try to hop straight through the fence to the bush on the other side of that fence and possibly hurt themselves in the process.
Please look at the pictures with this report as they will show the work we have been doing on our rehabilitation facility.
Thank you once again for allowing us to look after Sydney's orphaned Wallabies and Kangaroos properly by donating, this allows us to build the rehabilitation facility.
I'm a female Eastern Grey Kangaroo joey. I am approximately 61/2 months old and very cute.
I'm drinking and putting on weight, but I need a name. Please help.
Every donation made to the "Rehabilitate Wallabies and Kangaroos in Sydney" project on the GlobalGiving site for the month of July can submit a name via the online survey located at:
At the end of July the winning name will be announced on our project page.
To see some cute photos of me to help inspire you to decide on my name, see the flyer attached to this project report.
Thank your for your support, every donation counts and helps us to care for Australian Native Wildlife. We appreciate your input and hope that you continue to support us.
Best of luck to you all.
Sydney Wildlife is very thankful for your donations.
Up until now, our volunteers have had to care for and rehabilitate our injured and orphaned Macropods (Kangaroos and Wallabies) in their own homes and backyards. Sydney Wildlife has been lucky enough to secure a lease for part of Waratah Park (former home of "Skippy") and thanks to the funds we have received towards this project, we can now start building a suitable facility that accomodates their complex requirements before release.
Our hardworking volunteers have started to clean the area in preparation to build our facility for Macropods. We have spent several days clearing out sheds, mowing and weeding. These areas will become our rehabilitation facility and quarantine room.
On top of the physical work we have been doing, we have also been taking measurements and getting quotes to get the best price possible to build our facility.
