Australia Bushfire Emergency
Australia endured the most dangerous and catastrophic bushfires they have ever seen.
The fires in Australia at the start of 2020 were devastating.
More than 10 million hectares were burnt. That’s the equivalent of 40% of the entire UK.
Lives, homes, and an estimated 1.25 billion animals were affected, including 30% of the entire koala population in mid-north coast of New South Wales. These catastrophic megafires worsened the extinction crisis that we’re already facing.
Donate to the Australia appeal
With the money raised, our Australia teams along with local organisations will carry out work including:
- Providing emergency funds to care for injured wildlife
- Helping restore homes for koalas and other wildlife, planting the first 10,000 trees urgently needed in koala habitats
- Supporting the response, recovery and restoration teams in any other way we can
- Helping pressure governments to strengthen laws that prevent excessive tree-clearing, before it's too late
We’ll keep reviewing where the money is most needed. Thank you for your amazing support.
