Emergency Bushfire & Recovery Appeal Providing long-term help for our Australian wildlife.
This is an urgent response to the catastrophic bushfires destroying our wildlife. After the fires, there will be so much work to be done to ensure the survival of our Australian wildlife. This appeal is about long-term support.
The bushfire crisis was relentless and the suffering of so many animals and creatures is now evident. FAME’s role is a challenging one; as the circumstances of our native wildlife deteriorate, more and more of our precious native species become endangered or will become extinct due to catastrophic causes.
Our commitment to support, long-term, both current and recent projects is unwavering. At this time, there is no exception.
FAME continues to be committed to funding on-ground conservation projects to save Australia’s most rare and endangered native species.
During this difficult time, we are working closely with all our on-ground project partners to ensure the best possible outcomes and aid in their recovery by assisting to rebuild sanctuaries and provide funding for new ones, funding supplies to assist in the recovery of our fauna and flora, additional staffing where needed and by replacing important lost equipment that helps us monitor and track on an ongoing basis.
With your help we will continue to financially support both current and recent projects to ensure we provide what is needed for the long-term survival of our precious native wildlife.
We cannot do it all, but we can focus on those projects in most need of our help.
FAME’s commitment to confront this reality has no boundaries. Along with you, we will do what is needed.
