Bushfire recovery update: Mid North Coast Macropod Enclosure Construction
Many WIRES members directly felt the impact of the 19/20 bushfire season and continue their efforts to rebuild after the tragic losses experienced.
WIRES carer Cheryl, the Macropod Coordinator in the Mid North Coast region of NSW, lost an entire enclosure to these fires.
With the support of Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife and ongoing maintenance/upkeep from WIRES, this enclosure is in the process of being rebuilt. Two pens are being built; a Macropod rescue/release pen and a Macropod joey rescue/release pen. Both will be fully equipped to care for Macropods from rescue to release.
Progress on this rebuild continues, the land it will be constructed on has been levelled by a bulldozer and we are waiting on fencing to be installed. You can see green reappearing in the surrounding landscape.
This rebuild will directly impact the wellbeing of local wildlife, particularly Eastern Grey Kangaroos who will be cared for extensively again.
