Wildlife Fund (previously Bushfire Appeal)

Please note: From July 1 2020 all donations made will go towards our wildlife fund for future projects.  Recommendations made by the SA Government’s Wildlife and Habitat Bushfire Recovery Taskforce (established in January 2020) will inform many of these projects.   ___________________________________________________________

With fires ravaging our state, animals are at their most vulnerable. Please donate to help protect them.

RSPCA South Australia is doing all we can to protect the animals in threatened or affected areas. But once the active fire zones clear, that’s when the most challenging work begins.

This includes the rescue and treatment of animals most affected by the fires. With thousands of animals already affected, we need your help with this important work.

Our teams are prepared with equipment and supplies for the field to help animals injured or in distress from the fires. Our inspectors and veterinary staff have been deployed in the Adelaide Hills and Kangaroo Island, under the direction of Primary Industries and Regions South Australia, and will assist animals in distress for as long as needed. 

The impact of the fires is devastating. We are preparing for long-term rescue and rehabilitation efforts.

We want to assist other South Australian animal welfare organisations – particularly those working to save native animals – with targeted, practical support that helps surviving animals get back on their feet. We must ensure native animals are not forgotten as the landscape begins to regenerate.

All of the money raised through this appeal will be directed to bushfire response initiatives and organisations we are collaborating with, to ensure rapid and effective action for impacted animals.

For the koalas on Kangaroo Island. After experiencing the devastating 4 January 2013 bush fires in Tasmania my wife and I organised the only just completed Symbols of Bushfire Recovery project, which was partly funded by donations. We employed local practicing artists who offered a series of free creative workshops that helped residents from the Sorell and Tasman Municipalities recover from the trauma. Our experience has given us an insight into how creativity can help suffers recover from a catastrophic event.

I did a fundraiser in lieu of gifts earlier this year for my 50th birthday. My generous friends and I managed to collect $500. We really wanted to choose an important local cause. Thank you from all of us for all your efforts to date to assist the beautiful wildlife on the Island.

Your wonderful volunteers are doing an amazing job caring/protecting these beautiful and vulnerable animals. I wish I could help in person with the ongoing field activities, but given the current circumstances around travel restrictions, this is the least I could do to support. Keep up the good work guys. The animals cannot fend for themselves when human activity impacts their safe habitats.
