Summary

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 other native wildlife. Many of these animals 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 suitable enclosures to aid in their rehabilitation.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Shadow's Story (Swamp Wallaby): Rescued after his Mother was hit by a car, Shadow required care for 12 months before release. For the first part of his life he lived in a man-made pouch and now needs to be rehabilitated and given the ability to strengthen his bones and muscles in a large area away from danger prior to release. As most of our injured and orphaned wildlife are cared for by volunteers at home, they don't always have the area for large enclosures to complete rehabilitation.

How will this project solve this problem?

By building suitable large fenced areas and enclosures simulating their natural habitat, it provides a safe environment for the animals to complete their rehabilitation and develop their natural skills without the threat of predators. This allows the animals to be acclimatised to the fitness and diets required before they are released back into the wild.

Potential Long Term Impact

By releasing healthy and habitat acclimatised animals we are ensuring the preservation of our unique Australian wildlife.
