Catastrophic fires, the worst drought in history and record high temperatures are taking a tragic toll on native wildlife. Hundreds of fires over weeks have burnt over 4 million hectares of land in NSW alone. It is impossible to know how many animals have perished and it will be many months before the impact on wild populations can be better understood but ecologists at Sydney University have estimated over 480 million animals have been affected in Australia since September.
WIRES mission is to actively rehabilitate and preserve Australian wildlife and inspire others to do the same.
100% of all profit made will be donated to WIRES Emergency Fund.
