Major funds available to support wildlife after the bushfires

Australia’s largest wildlife rescue organisation, WIRES has teamed up with Landcare Australia to offer small grants from a pool of $1 million to help develop relief and recovery plans that will provide best solutions to assist wildlife surviving the recent catastrophic bushfires across Australia. 

Grants of up to $20,000 are available for each project from the pool which is part of the WIRES – Landcare Wildlife Relief & Recovery Grants 2020, funded by public appeals and donations across the nation. 

The grants program will provide additional support for networks and groups to coordinate and fund projects that will maximise their impact on recovery efforts and improve outcomes for affected wildlife. 

Applications close at 3pm on 30 April 2020, with successful applicants notified by the end of May. Projects and final reports should be completed by June 2021. 

Further guidelines, eligibility and how to apply are available on this website or download a letter.
