Provide care for injured koalas, wallabies, and other animals affected by Australian bushfires.

The bushfire season has come early and angrily to New South Wales, an eastern state in Australia. Victoria and Southern Australia have also been struck. When a fire starts, for wild animals, it's a race for their lives. This plucky survivor, an orphaned baby koala named Zenani, was found by the side of the road after an inferno raced through the Hunter Valley. After initial intensive care to treat her burned paws and singed fur, Zenani is doing well. But emergency medical treatment costs nearly $25 a day to look after a burned koala like Zenani. And it can take up to a year to make a full recovery and be released back into the wild. There are many animal victims of the bushfires, many with more serious injuries, all in desperate need of medical care. In the coming days and weeks as surviving animals start to return home, more injured animals will be found.

IFAW is working with the Native Animal Trust Fund and Hunter Koala Preservation Society to help wildlife injured in the New South Wales bushfires. Koalas, wallabies, possums, and other animals need to be treated quickly. Many of these victims will need to be cared for through a long recovery period before they are able to survive on their own in the wild.

You can help. Just $25 helps care for koalas and other wildlife injured in Austrailian bushfires.

Report from the Field
January 2015

Due to the burnt paws of many Koalas, IFAW had asked for donations to purchase cotton mittens. GreaterGood responded to IFAW's call, helping raise funds for these mittens. After an overwhelming response from individuals and charities all over the world, IFAW has announced they have enough mittens but still need funds to treat these displaced Koalas. Every dollar helps. Please donate today.

IFAW works to improve the welfare of wild and domestic animals throughout the world by reducing commercial exploitation of animals, protecting wildlife habitats, and assisting animals in distress. IFAW seeks to motivate the public to prevent cruelty to animals and to promote animal welfare and conservation policies that advance the well-being of both animals and people.
