Your legacy for our wildlife
Monday, January 23, 2023
We are deeply grateful to the faithful donors who've left gifts in their wills to WIRES. These visionary gifts give us the confidence to think big for the future of our wildlife, and make sure we can continue providing our 24/7 Emergency Response Service for the decades to come.
Here are the stories of two recent Bequestors. We extend our sympathy to the families and our deep gratitude for their life-changing legacies for wildlife.
The late Nigel Webster (1949-2021) was a gifted student who graduated from Merton college, Oxford University with a degree in Agriculture. He travelled widely throughout his life, and in 1978 he emigrated to Darwin, where he met and married his late wife, Laura. They retired to Dorrigo, NSW in 2001 and spent a very happy 20 years, surrounded by wildlife, flora and fauna. We are deeply grateful for their legacy for wildlife.
We are also deeply thankful for the bequest left by the late Karen Macdonald, a WIRES volunteer. Karen was a generous, caring woman who dedicated much of her life to her family, friends and of course the native animals who needed her. She was a dedicated wildlife carer, expert in caring for and rehabilitating native bird species and in particular, ducklings. Many injured birds and orphaned ducklings got their second chance thanks to Karen and will continue to do so through her generous bequest. Our thoughts are with her family and friends..
