The NSW Wildlife Information, Rescue and Education Service INC mission is to actively rehabilitate and preserve Australian wildlife and inspire others to do the same. WIRES has been rescuing and caring for wildlife for over 30 years and is the largest wildlife rescue organization in Australia. We are passionate about supporting smaller volunteer organizations in the wildlife sector with the same mission, as well as Universities, Veterinary Associations and other leading scientific and environmental groups.
In WIRES history we have never seen a concurrent series of emergencies events like those that began in November. Hundreds of fires over weeks have burnt over 4.9 million hectares of land in NSW alone. Many animals were already struggling with a lack of water and food due to the drought. With the fires destroying unprecedented amounts of habitat, food shortages have increased and lack of suitable habitat will be a significant long-term challenge for surviving wildlife.
Thanks to the incredibly generous support provided by the national and international community in the first week of January, WIRES is now offering national emergency support to assist groups working with wildlife affected by these emergency events.

The Humane Society of Ventura County is a compassionate care shelter and non-profit organization dedicated to the protection and adoption of homeless animals throughout Ventura County.
Oceana seeks to make our oceans as rich, healthy and abundant as they once were. Oceana, was established by a group of leading foundations — The Pew Charitable Trusts, Oak Foundation, Marisla Foundation (formerly Homeland Foundation), Sandler Foundation, and the Rockefeller Brothers Fund — after a 1999 study they commissioned discovered that less than 0.5 percent of all resources spent by environmental nonprofit groups in the United States went to ocean advocacy. No organization was working exclusively to protect and restore the oceans on a global scale. To fill the gap, our founders created Oceana: an international organization focused solely on oceans, dedicated to achieving measurable change by conducting specific, science-based policy campaigns with fixed deadlines and articulated goals.
The Ocean Law Project — also initiated by The Pew Charitable Trusts — was absorbed into Oceana in 2001 as Oceana’s legal arm. In 2002, Oceana merged with American Oceans Campaign, founded by actor and environmentalist Ted Danson, to more effectively address our common mission of protecting and restoring the world’s oceans.
Since its founding, Oceana has won more than 200 victories and protected more than 4.5 million square miles of ocean.

Homeboy Industries provides hope, training, and support to formerly gang-involved and previously incarcerated men and women allowing them to redirect their lives and become contributing members of our community.
In 1986, when Homeboy Industries’ founder, Gregory Boyle became pastor of Dolores Mission Church, it was the poorest Catholic parish in Los Angeles. The parish included Aliso Village and Pico Gardens, then the largest public housing projects west of the Mississippi. They also had the highest concentration of gang activity. That was saying something, given Los Angeles’ reputation as the gang capital of the world.
At the time, law enforcement tactics of suppression and criminal justice policies of mass incarceration were the prevailing means to deal with gang violence. But where others only saw criminals, Father Greg saw people in need of help. Today, Homeboy Industries is the largest gang intervention, rehabilitation and re-entry program in the world, welcoming thousands through our doors each year.

Dear Wadleigh Family,
You have no idea how touched and honored I am to receive such a generous contribution on behalf of Matt and all the LOVE he wanted to spread throughout the world. Your contribution is going to be used in many ways and is going to help change many lives of orphans in Bolivia! Some of the money will go towards my peanut butter project. Every morning for two months straight, I am going to put a huge spoonful of a peanut butter mixture on a piece of bread and feed it to children 5 years of age and under who are extremely malnourished. This project will actually save many of their lives. Some of the money will also be used to build a huge garden that will have many beans, vegetables and fruit. I am also planning to provide them with milk, chickens, goats and a pig! After all of this is done, the people in the orphanage should become self-sustainable relying on their own work. Instead of eating rice and bread, these people will now be eating healthy meals and learning life long tools!! Matt must be so proud of all you guys are doing in memory of him and his LOVE for people. The LOVE will really be shown in Bolivia with the poorest of the poor and the sickest of the sick... Thanks so much again!
