You are here:
Last summer's fires saw the largest single loss of wildlife in modern history. Many struggling Australian species have now been pushed even further towards the brink of extinction.
It's time to unite. Will you help us take the lead for our wildlife?
Last summer, Australia was ravaged by the most devastating bushfire season the country has ever seen.
34 lives lost, houses destroyed, and over 12 million hectares of Australian land was burnt. Tragically, over 1.25 billion animals, many found nowhere else in the world, perished.
Right now, 119 of our unique native species - already pushed to the brink - are at risk of being lost forever. We are particularly concerned about four key species that are now vulnerable or critically endangered: the brush-tailed rock-wallaby, Kangaroo Island dunnart and glossy-black cockatoo and distressingly, our koalas.
But all hope is not lost. Help is urgently needed to support our second phase of bushfire recovery work, to deliver:
2020 has already proved to be a year of incredible challenge. Will you please help our precious wildlife and habitats recover from this disaster?
