Donations to Interstate Bushfires

Thank you to everyone who has contacted us wanting to help wildlife affected by bushfires interstate.

Wildlife Victoria operates only in Victoria and we are unable to accept donations to assist animals or wildlife shelters in NSW or Queensland. All donations made to us of goods or money will go towards helping sick, injured and orphaned wildlife in Victoria only. If you specifically want to help the wildlife interstate, you will need to contact wildlife organisations or shelters based in those states.

We have been overwhelmed by the kindness of people wanting to donate items for wildlife but due to limited space we are now only able to accept the following:

  • Knitted pouches made from 100% wool
  • Cotton or flannelette pouch liners 
  • Hanging pouches made from polar fleece, cotton, flannelette or hemp 
  • Highly specialised medical equipment such as burns dressings (please contact us to discuss first) 

We have received as many bat wraps and koala mittens as we need for this season. Thank you to everyone who has put so much time and care into making these items.

Wildlife Victoria.

A helping hand for wildlife in need.
