all our Bush Fires.

and 850 acres backing onto Wadbilliga National Park in Yowrie near Cabargo. We are release sites, and committed long term to the welfare of all wildlife in care and elsewhere.
Additionally, we have rescue goats and ponies and will try and help any animal requiring short or long-term help and accommodation.

interest in the suffering of the surviving kangaroos during
culls for meat Production and the damage caused to their
social structure and genetic lines as a result. We are 
interested in the protection of all wildlife, but currently focus mainly on kangaroos and wallabies who require quite a lot of time and resources. We care for wildlife under licence with Wildlife Rescue South Coast.

4am on NYE this happened  

At 4am on NYE, I was woken to a raging wind and inferno. The Mogo State Forest was on fire. We tried to protect the property but we couldn’t. It wasn’t a bushfire. 
It was a raging apocalypse.
 There were no planes or fire trucks there to access or help us. By the time it reached the back of our property, our pictured neighbour Simon had already lost everything. 
We took shelter at the river and he was able to get his boat over to us and 
he got us to the only place we could be, in the centre of the water at 
Batemans Bay. 

We are safe 

with friends and Simon has been back. There is nothing left except miraculously, 
the little cottage. He is there with no power and no water.
 We are safe with communications back tonight, 
at Bawley Point staying with a friend. The inferno was so bad we probably would have 
died too from smoke inhalation if not fire. Given the intensity, we are 
unsure if any of the Roos survived. 
I wait for news and desperately hope that even one made it out alive. There was 
nowhere for them to flee. We will go on. We will rebuild. We will restore nature and 
then we will again care for kangaroos. They are the ONLY thing that matters to me. 
Many messages and missed calls. I will get to them as I can  

They lost everything they used to help the  Animals they have to rebuild all of it this is what is left of the feeding area 

We would love it if you could possibly donate to their charity to help them rebuild they don't only help Kangaroo's they help other Australia wildlife like these guys they are all Australian Wildlife
