Wildlife Recovery Fund


Please give generously to help a significant fund that will help our wildlife recover from devastating bushfires in South Australia.

While many community groups have mobilised to provide an immediate response to caring for injured wildlife, the Wildlife Recovery Fund takes a long-term strategic approach to re-establish critical habitat and undertake priority recovery actions in South Australia, particularly for threatened and vulnerable species.

Almost $450,000 in community donations has been granted to 20 Wildlife Recovery Fund recipients to help wildlife and native flora recover from last summer’s devastating bushfires. A range of projects across bushfire-affected communities in South Australia have received between $1,000 and $50,000 each to re-establish habitat, help the recovery and protection of threatened species and increase knowledge about the environmental impact of bushfires.  

Your donations will go to local landholders, farmers, and community groups in fire affected regions to assist natural regeneration through activities including feral animal and weed control, and fencing. This will give both threatened animal and plant life the best chance of recovery.

Funds will also be directed to restore habitat in fire-devastated national parks – particularly on Kangaroo Island.

Nature Foundation in partnership with National Parks and Wildlife Service South Australia have again joined forces to establish and manage this fund. 100% of the funds recieved will be going directly to priority recovery activities through the Wildlife Recovery Fund Grants Program

We will work with communities to identify and assess impacts and to prioritise recovery activities.

All donations will be directed to wildlife and habitat restoration and donations $2 and over are tax-deductible. We’ll make sure sound planning, good science and local advice ensures funds raised are put to use quickly in the most important places and achieve the best possible outcomes.
