Fundraising for Australian Wildlife

Australia is one of the countries I have always loved visiting over the years. I was so upset and heartbroken to hear about the bushfires on Kangaroo Island and throughout Australia it is always more sad when you hear about a place that is special to you has been affected by devastating bushfires. As a way of showing my support in a small way if you order any of my images in January 50% of profits will be donated to two causes that are close to my heart Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors and a Kangaroo Island Fundraiser https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/NatashaBalletta

Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors

The Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital was originally started by Steve and Terri Irwin as a dedication to Bindi's Grandmother. Terri, Bindi and Robert have continued Steve's legacy through Wildlife Warriors and in Steve's memory they have a wetland conservation property called Steve Irwin Wildlife Reserve, it is in Queensland's Cape York Peninsula and the wetlands are home to rare plants and wildlife.

Steve Irwin was the first person who got me into wildlife and conservation through his programmes and the Irwin family have been my inspiration ever since so it means more to me raise funds for their hospital. Since the bushfires they have treated 90,000 animals and hope to release one of the koalas Maddie back into the wild which is great news.

Kangaroo Island Fundraiser

Visiting Kangaroo Island in November 2011 was one of my dream holidays, it is a wildlife haven and Australia's third largest island, it is home to more then 60,000 kangaroos, wallabies, koalas, seals, Australian Sea Lions and Fairy Penguins. One of the places I visited was Seal Bay Conservation Park where you can see the Australian Sea Lion Colony up close from a boardwalk, they are one of the rarest species in the world and I was in my element watching them in a natural environment.

Dana Mitchell has set up a fundraiser on GoFundMe, they are in the process of building extra holding enclosures as they expect to treat more animals over the next few weeks. Any funds raised will contribute towards veterinary costs, koala milk and supplements and extra holding/rehabilitation enclosures https://www.gofundme.com/f/help-save-kangaroo-islands-koalas-and-wildlife
