NSW's Mid North Coast over the past 4 years has faced unprecedented drought and horrific fires and floods that have decimated wildlife habitat.  FAWNA's volunteers cover an area of 18,000 sq km and deal annually with approximately 4,500 calls to help for native animals, birds and reptiles in the region.  Our wildlife become victims of vehicle collisions, domestic and feral animal attacks, extreme weather conditions, entrapment and there are many other reasons they need rescue and care before they can be released back to the wild. 

How will the funds be used?
Support from FAWNA for all our volunteers with the full cost of products, food and housing for all species of wildlife needing aid.  The region's arboreal marsupials and microbats need housing support with nest boxes and dreys so they can re-establish themselves into their home territory too often decimated by land clearing and development or by disasters such as fire, drought, storms and floods.

This fund has enabled FAWNA to respond immediately to the needs of free-living wildlife badly impacted by the immediate aftermath of habitat loss through fire, most recently in the Willi Willi area west of Kempsey in 2023.  After the Black Summer fires 15 tonnes (yes, tonnes) of macropod pellets, and 13.5 tonnes of wild bird seed was distributed to support the region's wildlife suffering lack of food.  All thanks to the generous donations from the community.

FAWNA in the last season has taken in over 50 flying-fox pups from Queensland heat and starvation conditions and from Sydney and Central coast heat stress events.  This fund has covered the considerable cost of food for these Flying Foresters through their creche and release back to the wild.  FAWNA is proud that it hasn't needed to ask the originating wildlife groups to pay for FAWNA's costs for release.  FAWNA gratefully acknowledges a generous contribution from WIRES to help its considerable annual costs for wildlife foodstuffs.


Key Areas of Expenditure for this 2024 campaign repeat what worked 4 years ago..

All donations from this appeal will be spent on food items and equipment that directly benefits injured, orphaned and disadvantaged fauna. Any capital wildlife care items purchased will remain FAWNA's property but will be held by active wildlife rehabilitators.  Veterinary costs for wildlife will be included.

All of FAWNA's activities are directed to meeting our aims For Australian Wildlife Needing Aid, and our admin costs are kept to the bare minimum. There are no paid employees - maximising our dollars to benefit wildlife directly.
