Help wildlife recovery

RECYCLING cans and bottles can now support efforts to help native wildlife recover from the summer’s destructive bushfires.

Aiming to raise $250,000 for WWF Australia’s Wildlife and Nature Recovery Fund by the end of May, Tomra Collection Solutions has launched a new ‘Cans for Koalas’ appeal.
NSW recyclers using a Tomra reverse vending machine, can select ‘donate’ on the screen and choose Cans for Koalas to make WWF Australia the recipient of 10 cents per eligible bottle or can.
Funds raised will go towards supporting veterinarians who are providing care and medical treatment to injured wildlife across Australia, providing food and water to animals in bushfire impacted regions and the restoration of habitats through tree planting projects.
WWF Australia CEO Dermot O’Gorman said the recovery work ahead was immense.
“The Cans for Koalas drive will help us continue to respond to affected wildlife and deliver long-term plans,” he said.
Tomra president Ryan Buzzell said:”Like all Australians, we were saddened by the loss of over one billion Aussie animals including koalas, kangaroos and kookaburras in the most recent bushfires, and felt compelled to do what we can to help them recover,” he said.
