Due to the fires in East Gippsland we'll be directing funds and efforts to scouting and assessing fire damage in reserve areas (once it is safe to do so), surveying for animals affected by these fires and ensuring the remaining unburnt forest in East Gippsland is protected as important refuges for wildlife.

You can also donate to wildlife shelters in East Gippsland that were impacted by the fires. They will need funds and resources to be able to provide shelter, food and care for wildlife in the wake of the catastrophic fires.

Donate to the Goongerah Wombat Orphanage

We are a tiny grassroots organisation who run on the smell of an oily rag! But we sure do get bang for buck.

Despite operating on a tiny budget, we've managed to save thousands of hectares of forest from logging.
