2011 QUEENSLAND FLOODS AND CYCLONE YASI
Now that the cyclone has moved through and the waters are receding, we at HSI are assessing the requests for assistance and the needs of the wildlife groups on the ground to see where help is needed and how we can be most effective. The following assistance has been provided and further support and donations can be made either to HSI for redistribution or to the individual programs directly (see links).
First, Wildlife Preservation Society of Queensland (www.wildlife.org.au) have come to us with their list of needs and we have sent emergency funding for the following:
- Bat Care - groups in SEQ need to cover cost of fresh food for orphans and injured flying foxes/bats. Fruit prices have increased substantially since the floods.
- Wildlife carers and rehabilitators in Toowoomba region - funds to assist with food including milk substitutes, fruit and also cages and towels, blankets etc
- Project Kial (Rockhampton region) Bridled Nailtail wallaby project - needs are for food and repair of fences etc
- Duckpond Reserve - Rockhampton. Re-vegetation and re fencing - repairs
- Caboolture/Pine Rivers region - funds toward medication and food for koalas; replanting of koala food trees destroyed by flash flooding.
