Veterinarians will be able to access better training in order to prepare them for future disasters, following the hundreds of thousands of wildlife deaths during the Black Summer bushfires.

In NSW alone, a minimum of $1.8 million of free vet services are administered to wildlife each year, with this figure estimated to be far greater following recent disasters.

Veterinarians report that many aspects of their formal education had not adequately prepared them for emergency wildlife care.

As a result, The Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife is launching the Wildlife Friendly Vets program as part of its ‘Wildlife Heroes’ project, which aims to support wildlife volunteers around the country.

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.
