◽️ Yesterday the calls we had been dreading started to come through to the WIRES rescue line from #Tathra 🔥 ◽️ The first was for a female juvenile eastern grey kangaroo was reported in distress. WIRES volunteer Janine was able to organise special permission and a @nswpolice escort into the still closed township, to assess and rescue the young animal. ◽️ Janine is hopeful she will be able to bring her back to health but knows it will be tough. Young 'Ashley' was taken for immediate veterinary treatment. She now has ointment on her burns, is receiving antibiotics and pain medication and is in care with Janine and resting comfortably.
We are hoping she makes it. 💚 ◽️ This morning Tathra has been reopened to residents and we ask any locals to please put out bowls of water for wildlife if they can. ◽️ Any animal seen with burns or obvious injuries, observed by themselves for any length of time or out in daylight when they are normally nocturnal please call WIRES rescue line on 📞1300 094 737 immediately. ◽️ If you would like to donate to provide assistance for our rescue services please do so using the link in our bio
