IN PHOTOS: WILDLIFE IMPACTED BY THE FLOODS
WWF-Australia’s Dr Prishani Vengetas recently visited our partners Friends of the Koala, Byron Bay Wildlife Hospital and Currumbin Wildlife Hospital to assist with helping wildlife impacted by the devastating floods in the Northern Rivers region.
When a disaster at the scale of these latest floods happens, one thing is clear - no one organisation can meet the needs of all wildlife across the country. That’s why WWF-Australia has partnered with incredible groups to ensure help is received quickly and wherever it’s needed most. Emergency funds have already been deployed for immediate wildlife rescue, care and recovery through our partners:
- Byron Bay Wildlife Hospital, NSW
- Currumbin Wildlife Hospital, Qld
- Friends of the Koala, NSW
- Sydney Wildlife, NSW
- Ipswich Koala Protection Society, Qld
Funds are also supporting emergency landscape project recovery with partners:
- Bangalow Koalas, NSW
- Border Ranges Richmond Valley Landcare Network, NSW

We are continuing to communicate with and provide support to partners as they work tirelessly to provide care for wildlife and work to recover from the floods. If you find flood-affected, sick or injured wildlife, contact your local licensed wildlife rescue group.
Countless wildlife have been affected, losing their homes and are in desperate need of help. Your donation could help partners rescuing flood-affected wildlife and efforts to build our resilience against future disasters.
Our heartfelt gratitude to all those working on-the-ground providing essential support for people and wildlife in affected regions. Our thoughts are with the families and communities affected by the devastating floods. Stay safe 💚
