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. ___________________________________________________________
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.
