Queensland, Australia has just experienced the worst flood in over 3 decades. The loss to families and business has been horrific but many don't consider the toll this catastrophe has taken on our wild life.
At the moment there are hundreds of animals being surrendered to wildlife carers across the affected areas. These helpless creatures have been displaced from their natural habitat, many being found in shock and injured and require special care and attention before they are capable of being set free again.
Our wildlife carers are an amazingly dedicated network of volunteers that receive little or not funding whatsoever. Many have hundreds of animals in their care and the cost of food and medial supplies comes out of their own pocket.
With fresh produce getting harder and harder to source the cost of fruit and vegetables is skyrocketing as supply is outweighed by demand. Many wildlife carers will gladly go without to feed the animals they are looking after.
I have just returned from visting a carer in Bellbowrie, one of the areas that was isolated and without power for over 4 days. I delivered 20kg bananas, 20kg carrots, 10kg apples and 12 litres of goats milk. I was shocked to find out that this amount of food would only feed her animals for a few days. You can imagine the expense that week after week of care involves.
I know that many of you have already donated money, time or goods during this time but I am hoping to raise just a little money and a little awareness for these amazing men and women that love, nuture and care for our sick and injured wildlife.
