I'm drinking and putting on weight, but I need a name. Please help.

The hard work has begun

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.

Sydney Wildlife would like to say thank you to everyone that has donated to our project during the April Challenge.  As we are 100% volunteer run organisation, we rely on the generosity of people like you.  

We would also like to pass on our thanks to GlobalGiving for the opportunity to be a part of their network and all their support and training prior and during the April Challenge.

Now the work can commence on cleaning up the area and starting to purchase the required materials to build a secure rehabilitation enclosure for the Wallabies and Kangaroos.

Stay tuned in the coming months for photos showing our progress.
