Looking to the future - Stage 2 Emergency Recovery Funding Plans

Your support along with the global interest and compassion for Australian animals continues to provide opportunities to improve the outcomes for our native animals now and in the future.

With the long recovery phase for wildlife and their habitat continuing to evolve we have recently announced the allocation of  Stage 2 plans for the Emergency Fund to help Australian native wildlife after the devastating droughts and bushfires of 2019/2020.

Stage 2 funding is being distributed across the core areas of Rescue, Rehabilitation and Recovery:

  • Supporting the rescue and care of sick, injured, displaced and orphaned animals and increasing national rescue and care capacity

  • Funding projects that address the impacts of the changed environmental landscape and support the recovery of wildlife habitat and the long-term preservation of native species

  • Supporting a national framework to engage volunteers in best practice rescue and rehabilitation of wildlife affected by emergency events and reduce future risk to wildlife

A major aim of the Stage 2 plan is to build national capacity through collaboration and long-term programs;

  • A national grants program will be run over the next five years to support best practise rescue and rehabilitation of wildlife and native species recovery projects.

  • Developing a national network, enhancing state-based systems and improving the structures and support for wildlife rescue and care.

  • Funding for 23 national hubs of our partner Animal Rescue Cooperative (ARC) to fund critical supplies including food, medical needs and the distribution of craft items to support wildlife carers during emergency events

  • Research funding to identify knowledge gaps in habitat conservation and species recovery in the changed landscape, post Black Summer Bushfires

  • Additional projects, programs and partnerships directly supporting species and habitat recovery initiatives and conservation efforts. This will directly address the ongoing impacts of the 2019/2020 emergency events including drought and fire that devastated wildlife populations.

Additional details of specific programs will continue to be announced throughout 2021 and we will be sure to keep you updated through future project reports, without you none of this would be possible and we thank you.
