IMPORTANT NOTICE !!!
Everyone, you are amazing. We have been given heaps of supplies in just a few days. For now, please, we do not need any more blankets or towels as we cannot store them. Will keep posted if we need more once we access the fire ground.
Gippsland has suffered a devastating wildfire event. Our wildlife will be severely impacted. Please be assured that we will be taking every measure within our control to assist injured wildlife. The fire has impacted known wallaby, roo, possum and koala habitat. Anyone wishing to donate can do so via our website or directly to WRAP Public Fund 633-000 129959664
If you live on the fringe area of the fire you may see animals that have been displaced or injured. It is best not to approach an injured animal. They will be extremely stressed. However if you have been able to pick up an animal please ensure it gets veterinary attention as soon as possible. Our local vets do not usually charge for treating wildlife. Do not attempt to feed it. If you need advice, or assistance, please call Gippsland based wildlife group WRAP on 1300 223 427.
We are overwhelmed at everyones generosity. At this stage we cannot get to the fire ground. It is hot and active but we will be there as soon as we are allowed to enter. Thank you thank you thank you to everyone who has donated and left items at Moe Vet Centre. It has ensured we can give the animals the best treatment. We will keep you updated so please keep returning to the page.
