These two Sugar gliders came into care in the Central West of NSW in late December. Smoke was blanketing the region in this period and dehydration and smoke inhalation issues were a likely cause.

This young Sacred Kingfisher was found near the fire grounds in the Upper Clarence Valley. Not yet old enough to fly and therefore still dependent on the parent birds for food and protection. It is now in care with one of our specially trained avian carers.

This young lady was seen right on edge of a main road and in danger of been hit by cars and trucks. A number of concerned community members called WIRES and with help from the Macquarie Fields Fire Station 084 crew she was soon in care.
