SeaWorld & Busch Gardens Fund Help wildlife Affected by Australian Wildfires

The SeaWorld & Busch Gardens Conservation Fund has approved an emergency animal crisis grant to the Minton Farm Animal Rescue Centre located in South Australia to assist with wildlife rescue efforts in the wake of the massive bushfires sweeping the country.

To date, an estimated 15 million acres have burned and 1 billion animals have been lost.

Minton Farm is on the forefront of wildlife rescue and support efforts in South Australia, including hundreds of species left injured and homeless on Kangaroo Island and the Adelaide Hills region.

The Emergency Crisis Grant will be used by Minton Farm to purchase medical supplies and medicines to treat the sick and injured, and to extend and add enclosures to accommodate rescued patients.

"We are desperately trying to keep up with the wildlife that is brought in by our volunteers but we are quickly going through supplies and running out of room to accommodate everyone's critical needs," said Bev Langley, Minton Farm Animal Rescue Centre founder. We are desperately trying to keep up with the wildlife that is brought in by our volunteers but we are quickly going through supplies and running out of room to accommodate everyones critical needs.

"This funding will aid our ability to care for rescued animals and give them the best chance of survival and ultimately a return to the wild. We are indebted and forever grateful to the Conservation Fund for its generosity, support and kind thoughts through this difficult time of fire and heat waves," she added.

The Conservation Fund has provided support to wildlife and rescue organisations in Australia since 2005, including previous fire-related emergencies.

Dr. Hendrik Nollens, President of the Conservation Fund said, "Minton Farm is on the front lines of this crisis, working around the clock to help save as many animals as possible. The quick work of the Conservation Fund in approving this grant speaks to our shared mission of animal rescue and wildlife conservation".

"Australia is home to many unique species, including the greatest percentage of marsupials in the world. Previous support from the Fund has allowed Minton Farm to progress in updating their facility, including healthy and thriving eucalyptus plantations to assist in feeding the koalas as well as specific medical equipment to help diagnosis and treat illnesses. Our hearts go out to the people and animals impacted in this latest wildlife crisis."

About the SeaWorld & Busch Gardens Conservation Fund
Since its inception in 2003, the Fund has granted over $17.5 million to more than 1,200 projects with 81 organisations in 70 countries around the world. Its grantees, or benefactors, include world-renowned conservation organisations such as World Wildlife Fund, The Nature Conservancy, Wilderness Foundation Africa, the Panamerican Conservation Association and The Audubon Society. In addition, the Fund supports lesser-known grassroots groups who are committed to protecting and preserving their local communities.

The Fund also receives donations from in-park guests, community friends, individual donors and corporate partners. SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment covers all administrative costs for the Fund, enabling 100 percent of all incoming donations to go directly to conservation. Learn more at swbg-conservationfund

I know they get a bad name from some and I can understand why, but they also do a lot of good!
