Sydney Wildlife is an Australian organisation run 100% by volunteers. Across this big city, Sydney Wildlife volunteers rescue native Australian animals including many Wallabies and Kangaroos. The orphans need 24 hour care after accidents which include being hit by cars, caught in bush fires, or surrounded by floods. Please help us help them by donating to build an enclosure to aid in their rehabilitation.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Shadow's Story: Rescued after his Mother was hit by a car, Shadow requires care for 12 months before release. For the first part of his life he lived in a man- made pouch. Shadow needs to learn to hop around and strengthen his bones and muscles in a safe area away from danger prior to release. To build up Shadow's muscles and those of other rescued Wallabies and Kangaroos we need a large fenced area for them to hop around in, developing their natural skills.
How will this project solve this problem?
By building a large fenced area and shelters we would be able to allow the kangaroos and wallabies to safely exercise without the threat of predators, and thus be fit enough to get away from danger and survive when released back into their natural habitat.
Potential Long Term Impact
By releasing healthy kangaroos and wallabies we are ensuring the preservation of our unique wildlife in this city.
