Sydney Wildlife is an Australian organisation run 100% by volunteers. Sydney Wildlife Rescue is tirelessly working to help our native wildlife that has been affected by the devastating bushfires in NSW. The bushfires have burnt around 4 million hectares of bushland across NSW and surrounding Sydney. Millions of native wildlife have perished in the fires and others desperately need medical assistance, food and shelter if they have any chance of survival.
Whilst a ring of fire burns around us, our Rehabilitation Facility has become an oasis of refuge for the fire-affected wildlife. Evacuees from our own members, after their facilities have burnt and from other organisations have been transfer to us for safety. Fire victims don't always arrive with burns, they often present with smoke inhalation, injuries related to fleeing from the fires or from trying to access water in these drought conditions.
Our Mobile Care Unit will be going to the fire grounds with volunteer vets to treat wildlife in the field. Our dedicated experienced Sydney Wildlife Rescue carers are able to take care of our precious wildlife long after these tragic fires have finished burning. We rely on donations to provide enough food, medical supplies, maintenance of shelters and cages to be able to care for all the wildlife that comes into our rehabilitation facility.
We need to do all we can to help as many of these injured and orphaned animals to ensure a future where Australia's unique wildlife still exists for future generations.
