Singleton Argus newspaper article. Link to online article is available in blog post.

This past summer has been the worst many Wildlife Aid carers have experienced. Kangaroos and other marcopods and wombats have had to travel further to find food and water to survive. This has led to many more road accidents, resulting in many more orphaned joeys ending up in our care. Adding to this burden is a funding shortfall, which reduces the amount of care we have been able to provide.

On the 6th February 2018, Singleton Argus journalist, Shannon Dann wrote about the dedication of our macropod coordinators Brad and Jill Smith, and the difficulties they are facing with our river systems and funding drying up.
