Tasmania’s Wildlife need your help

Tasmania is widely known for having the cleanest air in the world and an exceptional variety and number of wildlife. Some of it found nowhere else in the world.

But Tasmania’s native wildlife are suffering. Not only from highly contagious diseases, like the Tasmanian Devil Facial Tumor Disease or Sarcoptic Mange in Wombats. Human activities also impact significantly on native wildlife species. The native animals are affected by deforestation, habitat loss, environmental pollution, feral cats and other introduced species. Some wildlife can legally be shot by permit holders plus many animals simply get run over by cars.

Approximately 300,000 animals die every year on the roads in Tasmania. That equals about 1 animal every 2 minutes. It is an alarming rate, given that in some National Parks the Wombat numbers for example are as low as 10 individuals!

How you can help

Together we can save orphaned & injured wildlife

Not everybody can take on wildlife in need. Registered wildlife carers have been trained, they commit to a set feeding schedule day and night and they have enclosures in place that simulate the animals’ natural environment.

If you would like to help animals in need, there are lots of things that you could do:

Donate to help orphaned & injured wildlife

You can donate money, self-made pouches, building materials and other things to individual wildlife carers or to rescue organisations. We very much appreciate your support!

Buy wildlife merchandise to spread awareness about the roadkill issue in Tasmania and to support our cause. This helps us pay for the milk formula, medical expenses, housing etc.

There are a lot of things you can do to protect our precious wildlife: Slow down when driving at night, check pouches, volunteer, protect land for wildlife, etc. Click on the link above to see what you can do to help!
