AUSTRALIA: How you can help
21 mins read
Since October 2019, the wildfires have scorched more than 12 million acres, killed at least 24 people, and nearly 2000 homes have been destroyed in Australia.
It is reported that the fires have killed nearly 500 million birds, reptiles and mammals in New South Wales alone.
Many celebrities have already committed to donating hundreds of thousands of dollars to help the continent fight this devastating inferno. However, it is not possible to say at this point in time how much help is needed and how long it would take for Australia to recover.
If you’d like to help however you can, here are some of the organisations in Australia to donate towards:
Wires Wildlife Rescue
WIRES mission is to actively rehabilitate and preserve Australian wildlife and inspire others to do the same.
As a voice for wildlife, Zoos Victoria is devastated by the impact of the bushfire crisis on precious species and their habitat and is determined to assist in all aspects, including through raising much-needed emergency funds.
Donations to the Wildlife Victoria bushfire appeal will be distributed to wildlife shelters and carers to help rebuild enclosures and equipment that they have lost in the fires so that they can continue their lifesaving work, and support those that are struggling to cope with the enormous number of animals that will need care in the coming weeks and months.
