Many animals have recently been rescued from the burned areas by hundreds of very hard working volunteers. Some of them are still in care with wildlife carers.It cannot be stressed enough that without them the majority of these animals would face a certain death.
In Victoria there are about 340 licenced wildlife shelters and 360 registered animal foster carers (20 February 2009).
