Local wildlife rescue group, FAWNA, has set up the first Food4Wildlife collection station in Pappinbarra.
It's outside 844 Pappinbarra Road. People are encouraged to bring a small bag and collect a supply of kangaroo pellets and wild bird seed to put out to help their local wildlife.
FAWNA's Secretary, Andrew Ryan of Brombin is asking people to ease their local wildlife into this food to make sure it is getting where it is needed. Anyone in the Wauchope District prepared to be a community collection point should contact FAWNA via email on firstname.lastname@example.org sending their name address and phone number and FAWNA will make contact.
"The phones are running hot so do please use the email contact. This initiative has been made possible by generous donations to FAWNA by people wishing to help our native wildlife affected by drought and fires," he said.
Meanwhile FAWNA's everyday rescue rehabilitation and release of wildlife continues and all animals needing help should be referred to the 24 hour rescue hotline on 6581 4141
