RSPCA South Australia has begun coordinating its volunteer teams for bushfire relief efforts on Kangaroo Island as part of its Emergency Response Plan. The three teams are led by experienced animal handlers and rescuers selected from RSPCA South Australia staff. The groups are working to provide surviving native animals with life-saving veterinary care, food and water, as well as providing assistance and financial support for local wildlife groups.
The groups’ immediate tasks also include setting up two feed distribution points and delivering feed to private properties for landholder distribution (upon request). RSPCA South Australia will continue to coordinate volunteer teams on the Island for the next three to five months. Please contact RSPCA SA for more information.
