NSW government's bushfire relief for wildlife rehabilitators program: veterinary sector involvement
Peta Norris and Tim Johnson are picking up the work commenced by their NPWS colleagues Susan Crocetti, Gina Hart and Ron Haering to lead the $1 million bushfire relief for wildlife rehabilitators program funded through the NSW Environmental Trust.

The program delivers outcomes across three streams:
1. Direct support for wildlife rehabilitators through $500,000 of grants administered through the Wildlife Heroes program in partnership with the Foundation for National Parks and Wildlife;
2. Improving coordination and capability for wildlife response in bushfires, and;
3. Improving access to veterinary services for wildlife in emergencies.

Peta will outline the broad program and progress to date and Tim will provide an update on results of the after action review survey completed by wildlife rehabilitators and vets following the 2019-20 bushfire season.

Dr Robert Johnson and Dr Michelle Campbell-Ward will join Peta and Tim as panelists for a dedicated Q&A session after the presentation.
