Save Native Wildlife from Bushfires
Bushfires are expected to be more ferocious and last longer, with some states already ablaze in Spring. This year, is predicted to be an especially vicious season.
Please spare a thought of the wildlife who are all too often the forgotten victims and the selfless volunteers who look after injured animals for weeks and sometimes months on end, without so much as an official thank you from anyone. Finding and getting an injured animal out of a fire ground is only the start of a long rehabilitation process. At present no government funding is available to assist carers rehabilitate and release these animals.
IFAW supports and funds the vital work of many wildlife carers, but what is really needed is for State Government / Federal Government to step up and acknowledge this unrecognised emergency service.
Please ask the government to help fund and acknowledge the service provided by wildlife carers as a critical wing of our natural disaster team. Help protect our already vulnerable wildlife for generations to come.

Dear Premier/ Chief Minister,
Year on year, I watch with horror media reports on the effects bushfires have on our environment and native wildlife. But my heart swells with pride when I hear about the tireless work of wildlife volunteers and carers, the dedication they show must now be acknowledged and supported.
Ahead of any catastrophic bush fire in our state, I urge you to personally intervene and ensure that Government funding is made available to the volunteer wildlife carers who are often left to pick up the pieces of bush fire tragedies, with little or no thanks.

Our state management of bush fires is a disgrace. I implore you to take immediate and decisive action to protect our already vulnerable wildlife for generations to come.
