Australia's Bushfire Crisis

Australia's wildlife is in desperate need of help during the current fire emergency. At Lone Pine, we are thankfully well removed from the current danger zones, but sadly, other wildlife organisations are not.
As we are removed from the immediate danger zone, we are assisting other organisations down south as best we can via monetary donations and the sending of medical supplies.
We are also a monetary donation collection point for Adelaide Koala Rescue.

It would mean a lot to us, and our friends throughout New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia, if you were also in a position to help in any way you can.

Craft Donations

If you are a little crafty, there is plenty you can do to help the sick, injured and orphaned wildlife. The Animal Rescue Craft Guild on Facebook as plenty of great information about the type of supplies organisations still need.

UPDATE 13th Jan 2020: the Craft Guild are currently closed for stocktake (the response has been just that overwhelming!). Once they know which items they are still in need of, they will update their Facebook page.
In the meantime, it is recommended you contact your local rescue centres or individual organisations (such as those above), to see what items they may need.

Volunteer

If you are wishing to volunteer your time, there is some great information on Wildlife Rescue Queensland's website. 
You don't have to be a wildlife carer to help - you can assist with the transport of wildlife, organising fundraising events, helping with admin duties, or even collecting plant cuttings for feed.
