Christmas Trees for Bushfire Recovery:
Give the gift of planting and maintaining a tree this Christmas for just $10

This Christmas, the Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife (FNPW), the charity partner of Australia’s National Parks, is calling for all Aussies to support its mission of planting one million trees in bushfire affected areas around Australia.

Earlier this month, FNPW, in conjunction with international non-profit, One Tree Planted and French beauty brand, L’OCCITANE launched three bushfire recovery nurseries in NSW, ACT and SA to start the planting of native trees which will help recover habitats for critically affected species, including the Koala and Glossy Black Cockatoo.

They are calling for all Aussies to help by:

  • Giving the gift of a tree to family, friends and colleagues which will be planted in bushfire affected areas around Australia. To plant and maintain one tree costs $10.
  • Forego buying a traditional Christmas tree and instead, donate towards planting a family of trees to be grown in their forever Aussie homes. It might not be in your lounge-room, but these trees will become your legacy and live for generations to come!

COLOUR IN TO HELP THE KOALAS

The Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife, the charity partner for Australia's National Parks, is helping to rebuild the habitats of our native animals following last year's bushfire season by planting one million trees.

Did you know koalas can eat as much as 1kg of leaves a day? Koalas are also very territorial, living in small communities with their family and friends.

To help the koalas, FNPW and the Funday Telegraph are inviting you to help plant trees.

Wildlife Heroes Grant Funds Custom Built Recovery Avery For Apex Predators

Birds of prey injured and treated on the Northern Rivers will have a custom-built aviary to recover before they are released back into nature. Byron Bay Wildlife Hospital received a grant of $50,000 from the Foundation for National Parks and Wildlife to build the structure and save wildlife.

Founder vet Stephen Van Mill said the free-flight aviary will be located on land owned by the proprietors of Sea Peace, a subtropical forest on 368 acres of regenerated land in Ewingsdale.

"The facility will treat birds of prey, raptors - wedge-tailed eagles, hawks, owls and falcons," he said.
