All tips from the generosity of our customers are currently being donated to Wildlife Victoria to help sick and injured native animals. $200 has already been donated with more coming in everyday.
"Every year thousands of native animals become sick, injured or orphaned as a direct result of human activity. If left, these animals may suffer and die in pain or of starvation. Wildlife Victoria focuses on responding to the community need to have someone to talk to when a native animal is found in distress. This is done by providing an emergency response service through our number 13 000 94535 and directly on-line, for injured, sick and orphaned wildlife. This professional service not only finds solutions to situations but also educates many callers on the habits and behaviours of our wildlife where intervention is not warranted."
"Over 12 months to the end of June we responded to a staggering 38,849 animals.
5,776 were kangaroos mainly hit by cars, so please slow down and stay safe especially at dusk till dawn. The busiest areas for “car wins over kangaroos” confrontations are those on the fringes of Melbourne.
Ringtail and brushtail possums are the next vulnerable species predominantly hurt and killed by our sweet moggies who are sadly venomous for these natives. Please keep your cats indoors especially during the night and help protect our wildlife.
Our majestic magpies, pretty rainbow lorikeets and mysterious ravens are also preyed upon by the vagaries of trying to co-exist with humans. Again moggies have a big impact on our native birds so responsible pet ownership is a must."
