Wild Ark is sponsoring the #Koalacomeback Australian Native Species Recovery Fund. The Fund will support organisations carrying out projects that quantify the impact of the bushfires on Australia’s endangered species, as well as identify the urgent needs that exist for wildlife living in fire-affected areas. Species of concern include birds, mammals, reptiles and amphibians listed, which are found on the Australian Government list of priority species requiring urgent management intervention.

Grants of up to AUS$16,000 are available for those working on the frontlines of the recovery process, including conducting species population surveys, protecting unburnt habitat or implementing other key interventions identified by species experts.
