Summary

This project will assist in the ongoing recovery of habitat and support for wildlife after emergency weather events. Bushfires and flooding destroy habitat and food sources. In the 2020 bushfires alone an estimated 3 billion native animals were lost. Additionally this project will assist WIRES in developing systems and capacity to respond to future large scale events such as the 2022 flood disaster.

Challenge

WIRES rescue Australian animals year round. Annually we respond to around 200,000 requests to provide rescue advice and assistance to injured, orphaned and displaced native animals and sadly the numbers continue to grow. We require support to help more animals by improving our rescue systems, expanding our training programs, increasing wildlife education, supporting long-term wildlife and habitat preservation and for building new care facilities to provide best practise care for all species.

Solution

Rescued animals require veterinary treatment, special food and life-saving medications. Some young animals will spend many months in care, this particularly true for orphaned animals such as koala and wombat joeys. Increasing WIRES capacity by expanding our emergency rescue capabilities and improving access to more rescue equipment and rehabilitation facilities are all critical aspects of our wildlife services that will enable us to provide emergency help to more animals in distress.

Long-Term Impact

As Australia's largest wildlife rescue organisation WIRES play a major role in wildlife rescue, rehabilitation and preservation. In additional to assisting individual animals every day, in the wake of the recent disasters WIRES had been developing new partnerships with key organisations to increase our involvement in wildlife habitat regeneration and species conservation to best protect and preserve wild populations of native animals long-term.
