WIRES and ARC Helping Wildlife
WIRES have been working closely with ARC, the Animal Rescue Cooperative, during and in the aftermath of the bushfires that devastated Australia during spring and summer.
Together, we have been delivering on the ground support to wildlife carers around Australia. This includes a significant financial partnership in wildlife food donations to feed thousands of native animals affected by the fires and drought. WIRES are proud to have worked with ARC to deliver tonnes of hay, joey formula, bird seed, macropod pellets and fresh vegetables to wildlife carers.
Both ARC and WIRES have received many items, including knitted pouches, knitted bird nests, hanging pouches and bat wraps which were generously made by talented people all over the world. With ARC's extensive network of volunteers and transport we have been able to deliver these items along with medical supplies, towels and blankets to wildlife carers in need.
ARC and WIRES have also formed a partnership with the Australian Men's Shed Association to construct and deliver artificial homes to native wildlife. These include houses for multiple possum species, gliders, birds and microbats. They will be deployed to areas which have been burnt to provide safe shelter for surviving animals.
