Watching the damage unfold has been heartbreaking, but with the tragedy we’ve also witnessed the bravery of our volunteer fire services, the strength of our communities and the generosity from everyone across the world.

It’s estimated that up to 500 million animals have perished during this fire season, and we’re grateful for the amazing and selfless work being done by Wildlife Victoria (and similar organisations) to give our wildlife the support they need. The funds raised will go towards rebuilding animal shelters and providing food and care for Australia’s native and unique wildlife.
