Emergency Bushfire & Recovery Appeal Providing long-term help for our Australian wildlife.
This is an urgent response to the catastrophic Australian bushfires of 2019-20 that killed an estimated three billion animals.
The devastation witnessed across much of Australia has become more stark over the subsequent months, and the job ahead is both urgent and long-term.
FAME’s role in this recovery is a multi-faceted one; immediate rescue and recovery programs are required for species at risk, but their long term survival is dependent on sustainable habitat revegetation and responsible management.
We can’t do this without you. Read more about the work below.
In the wake of the horrific 2020 Australian bushfires, FAME launched an Emergency Bushfire Recovery Appeal that aims to achieve a number of important outcomes.
We are working closely with our on-ground project partners to ensure the most affected programs are supported, including the funding of equipment replacement, additional staff and other logistical necessities to enable their important work to continue.
We are also helping to rebuild sanctuaries, track and monitor impacted populations and revegetate areas of habitat destroyed by the flames.
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.
Please join us in safeguarding Australia’s flora and fauna in the face of this unprecedented disaster.
