forest cuties saved from the fires

Baby Ringtail Possums

The recent fires in Victoria have been catastrophic for many communities. My heart goes out to all those who have experienced loss. Yesterday it finally rained! Here are some forest cuties who are currently being looked after by local wildlife carer, Annie - she is just one of the hundreds of volunteers who give their time and love to orphaned animals before they can return to the wild.

Can you see the huge difference between the Brushtail Possum and the Ringtail Possum? I think the baby Brushtails look so much like kangaroo joeys. Annie, told us they are also completely different creatures in personality and behaviour. Thank you to all of the FIre crews and volunteers who have helped so many in the last 3 weeks.

If you can donate, we support the amazing Colleen Wood and her volunteers at Southern Ash Wildlife Shelter - you can sponsor you very own koala until they are well enough to return to the forest.
