Unprecedented Tragedy

WIRES has been rescuing and caring for wildlife for over 30 years and recent weeks have been some of the worst in our history. On top of the worst drought on record in NSW, catastrophic bushfires have taken lives, hundreds of homes and destroyed over 4.9 million hectares of land. 

There are still over one hundred fires burning and little relief in sight with summer forecasts indicating drier than average conditions, below average rainfall and extreme heat. Even without emergency events summer is always frantically busy for wildlife rescue and in December 2019 WIRES received over 20,000 calls to our 1300 line and volunteers attended over 3,300 rescues.

We deeply thank everyone that has donated or offered help at this tragic time. We are inspired daily by the support of the community and the outstanding rescue and care work provided by our rescue team and volunteers, to daily help hundreds of sick, injured and orphaned native animals. 
With your ongoing support we will continue to work hard to help higher numbers of animals and to do all we can to help protect wildlife and preserve their future in the wild. 

If you received our summer letter we hope you have put the card for you in a special place and we encourage you, if you haven't yet, to write a message of support to WIRES volunteer rescuers and carers that will be shared with them to lift their spirits at this tragic time and send it back to us using the reply-paid envelope provided.

If you are a new WIRES supporter looking for an easy way to help wildlife every day, you are invited to join our Virtual Carer program, pledging $20 or more a month. As a thank you gift you will receive 'Elvis', our eco echidna plush and ongoing monthly insights into life as a wildlife carer through interviews, beautiful images, and rescue stories. You can sign up today via the donate monthly button or choose donate monthly via the Paypal button to join out VC team.
