Most Australian wildlife rescue and care is done by hardworking volunteers.
Wildlife volunteers in the ACT are under stress due to the current bushfires and the extreme heat events impacting many animals.
The Wildlife Heroes project will ensure wildlife volunteers get the help they need, so they can continue providing the best care for our amazing native wildlife.
The Wildlife Heroes project in ACT will initially assist in funding for emergency response for bushfires, extreme heat events, hail and floods.
Guidelines available here for the ACT Wildlife Heroes Emergency Fund: open for applications from 9.00am Tuesday 11 February - 5.00pm Friday 28 February.
