Help us provide urgent support to the brave people rescuing and treating injured wildlife in Australia's bushfire impacted areas.


Tragically, it has been estimated that over 1.25 billion animals have been killed across Australia in the horrific bushfires.

This includes thousands of koalas, kangaroos, wallabies, and other iconic species being burnt alive. Many thousands more are injured and homeless.

WWF has partnered with wildlife rescue and care organisations in bushfire zones and is directing funds to respond to the emergency at scale. This includes:

Urgent care: supporting specialised veterinarians who are providing care and medical treatment to injured wildlife across Australia.

Food and water: providing starving wildlife with food and water in bushfire impacted regions.

Finding koalas: deploying koala detection dogs to bushfire sites to search for surviving koalas.

Supplies and triage: getting veterinary supplies to bushfire triage sites.

We urgently need your help to save these vulnerable animals, and when the fires have cleared, restore the forests they need to survive.
