At present, the State and Federal Governments do not provide funding to help rescuers find, recover, rehabilitate and release animals affected by bushfire. IFAW does support and fund this vital work, but with the first fires of what is predicted to be a vicious season already upon us, we know it will not be enough. What is really needed is for State and Federal Government to step up and acknowledge this unrecognized emergency service.
Help protect our already vulnerable wildlife for generations to come. Ask the government to help fund the service provided by wildlife rescuers and carers as a critical wing of our natural disaster team.
We have prepared the following email template for you or, if you prefer, personalise it to make your own points but, please for the sake of the animals, be courteous.
