News from Wildlife Sanctuary: Recovery is slow but sure after Victorian Bushfires last year

In the aftermath of the Black Saturday Victorian bushfires of 2008, Stella and Alan Reid picked themselves up from the ashes of everything they had lost - especially the native animals they had rehabilitated and released on their property. Almost a year has passed and they are beginning to heal and rebuild their lives and starting over with a new better Wildhaven. The photos clearly show that the animals who somehow survived are deeply grateful for their second chance....

Study of Alice, the baby Wallaby, at Wildhaven

In March of this year we reported on the impact of the worst fires in Australia's history on Wildhaven, in Kinglake, Victoria. This animal rehab and refuge, from which many native animals had been released after expert care, was burned to the ground. Countless indigenous animals perished along with human beings. Stella was with the Country Fire Brigade, fire-fighting, while Alan Reid was trapped by fire at Wildhaven and almost died. Both survived and they are looking after wildlife orphans and hardship cases again. Stella has sent these wonderful photos of a juvenile wallaby, about thirty centimeters high, and her playmates, young kangaroos. Please enjoy and protect and preserve these values.
