Victorian Bushfire Appeal
We are aware of dozens of wildlife shelters and carers around the state that have been affected by the Victorian bushfires and extreme heat events.

Donations to our Victorian bushfire appeal will be distributed to wildlife shelters and carers to help rebuild enclosures and equipment that they have lost in the fires so that they can continue their lifesaving work, and support those that are struggling to cope with the enormous number of animals that will need care in the coming weeks and months.

In my small way to help raise funds, I will travel solo on foot around Victoria, covering 1,600kms in 42 days.

In recent fundraisers for various organisations, I have run 9,100kms around Australia and raised $29,000.

You can follow my travels here:

Thank you for your interest and support.
Please feel free to share these links as our wildlife and carers need as much assistance as possible to get through the current crisis.

Hi everyone.
Firstly, thank you all for your generous donations and support.
Today was day 12 of my trek around Victoria where I arrived in Hopetoun. I’ve covered 439.53kms on foot (according to my Garmin), with over 530,000 steps.

After the initial blisters and chaffing, the body has become conditioned to the rigours of this solo trek. More recently, I’ve somehow managed to get an infected bite - of what, I have no idea - but I’m sure a course of antibiotics will do the trick.

There’s a few hard days ahead, but I’m confident I’ll push through any other problems encountered.

Please feel free to pass on the word, so we can raise more funds and awareness for these very worthy causes.

Cheers,
Andre
