With all bushfires now contained, thanks to the huge and welcome February rainfall and efforts of the Rural Fire Service, there’s still much to be done.
The last days of 2019 through to the start of 2020 Australia faced down an unprecedented Bushfire Crisis. With scores of deaths, hundreds of thousands of animals killed and vast tracts of land burnt beyond recognition, its a crisis that will have a flow on effect for years to come.
The organisations and communities bearing the brunt of the impact are still in need of relief and the global community has stepped up to the challenge of raising funds. Our trainers and alumni stepped up too, with archival releases and even huge cash donations to the organisations on the front lines, and we’re forwarding proceeds of our sample packs store for wildlife rehabilitation.
