(HELP ANIMALS) Severe wildfires burning across Australia for months now have taken a tragic toll on it’s iconic habitats that make the continent an ecological wonder.
With nearly 18 million acres burned, experts estimate upwards of 1.25 billion animals–many of them unique to Australia–have been killed since the fires started in September.
A number of animal rescue groups and volunteers are working overtime to help farm animals, pets, and wildlife, including koalas, kangaroos, wallabies, wombats, and more, who are so desperately in need of rescue and treatment.
Global Animal Foundation, a 501(c)(3) that funds emergency animal rescue initiatives worldwide, is collecting donations to disperse between several vetted Australian rescue organizations, including Adelaide Koala Rescue and WIRES (Wildlife Information, Rescue and Education Services).
Please consider supporting the efforts to save animals in critical peril. Your compassion in action and support of Global Animal Foundation can help save the lives of animals in crisis.
