Our work with Wildlife
The WWF report, entitled Australia’s 2019-2020 Bushfires: The Wildlife Toll, revealed the true scale of devastation left in the aftermath of the Australia's 2019-20 bushfires. Nearly three billion animals were killed or displaced, including 143 million mammals, 2.46 billion reptiles, 180 million birds, and 51 million frogs.
In January 2020, the WWF UK bushfires appeal raised over £3.2 million as thousands of supporters signed up to become koala protectors and gave generous donations to help fund the recovery effort. The fund raised helped provide emergency care for injured wildlife, restore homes for koalas and other wildlife, plant the first 10,000 trees urgently needed in koala habitats, and support the response, recovery and restoration teams in Australia.
