As you see the devastating footage and heartbreaking pictures that’ve been making their rounds on social media, you’ve probably been wondering how you can help bushfire victims, rescue efforts and injured wildlife all the way from Singapore. Here are a few ways you can lend a hand.
New South Wales Rural Fire Service: One of the world’s largest volunteer fire brigades has over 2,500 firefighters in the field right now.
Kangaroo Island Wildlife Park fundraiser: The island was home to some of the country’s rare and endangered wildlife, and wildfires have destroyed about one-third of it. Money raised goes to vet costs, extra holding and rehab enclosures and supplements for victims.
WIRES Wildlife Rescue: The organisation rescues and rehabilitates wildlife victims, including koalas and grey-headed flying foxes, both categorised as species vulnerable to extinction.
