As bushfires affect people and native wildlife across Australia on an unprecedented scale, the Fondation decided to support two organizations at the forefront doing great work on the ground:
– New South Wales Wildlife Information Rescue and Education Services: WIRES with 2500 volunteers in 28 branches is involved in the rescue and care of wildlife and has a dedicated Rescue Office that operates 365 days a year assisting the community to help native animals in distress. They currently play a major role in assisting bushfire affected animals.

– New South Wales Rural Fire Service which is the primary agency for responding to bushfires in the land area of New South Wales and the Jervis Bay Territory.
