8 April 2009 - Our latest rescued Fire Victim is a very young Echidna (see Gallery) that we found wandering around Strathewen on Saturday night. He has some infected wounds from burns from the fires. Prognosis is good.
7 April 2009 - The Sugar Glider has now gone on to another shelter for its final stage of rehabilitation. Our wombat is doing well and her back has healed well. Still a bit thin but we are trying to fatten her up.
Still doing food drops in burn't areas as there are a lot of animals that require feeding. Still trying to source money for feed as I am getting a lot of requests from locals in fire affected areas for food.
4 April 2009 - We had a baby echidna come in tonight from Strathewen. It has wounds that are the results of burns. Prognosis is good. It has been to the vet and is currently on anti-biotics. So still getting in fire affected animals.
11 February 2009 - John the joey (see lead image) was rescued from the fires and stayed with Sue during his initial care. John is currently staying at the Coldstream Wildlife Shelter as he needed quite a bit of intensive care. He is doing ok now.
8 February 2009 - From today (one day after Black Saturday) Sue has been involved with Help for Wildlife in the search and rescue of Native Animals, food drops and other assistance to Fire Affected areas not just in her community but across the State of Victoria.
