Residents can put out the nuts for kangaroos and wallabies left with no grass, after the catastrophic fires that raged through the valley west of Wauchope last Sunday and Monday.

FAWNA has launched a fundraising campaign to help provide food for wildlife, until some rain comes, to bring fresh new shoots for the creatures that are without food now.

FAWNA’s Meredith Ryan says a donation as little as $5 will be grateully received to help the volunteer group defray its costs.

“A donation via the Donate link on the www.fawna.org.au website allows donors to specify that they wish the funds to go to the Pappinbarra wildlife,” said Meredith.

All donations are tax deductible, and can be made via the website or to FAWNA (NSW) Inc, P O Box 218, Wauchope NSW 2446.

Pappinbarra residents can collect the kangaroo nuts from FAWNA member Christine Nolan at 844 Pappinbarra Road.  Please take a plastic shopping back or container to collect the kangaroo nuts from the bulk bin available.

For injured and orphaned wildlife, contact FAWNA on its 24 hour 7 day a week volunteer rescue line 6581 4141.
