Familia del Cazador de Cocodrilos salva a 90 mil animales de incendios en Australia

La familia del “Cazador de Cocodrilos” los llevó al Hospital de Vida Silvestre para atenderlos

Ante la contingencia por los incendios forestales en Australia, la familia del fallecido “Cazador de Cocodrilos”, Steve Irwin, no se quedó de brazos cruzados y ha rescatado a miles de animales, los cuales suman casi 90 mil y están siendo atendidos en el Hospital Vida Silvestre.

La joven actriz Bindi Irwin publicó en Instagram un mensaje con su consternación por los incendios devastadores que ocurren en Australia, sobre todo por la afectación a la vida silvestre.

Indicó a sus amigos y seguidores que toda la familia está segura y no existen incendios cerca del Zoológico de Australia y de las propiedades de conservación de la familia.

“Nuestro Hospital de Vida Silvestre está más ocupado que nunca, ya que ha tratado oficialmente a más de 90 mil pacientes”.

Blossom the possum was admitted to the #AustraliaZoo Wildlife Hospital after being caught in one of the bushfires burning in other parts of Queensland. We have such an incredible team who work day and night to protect gorgeous animals like Blossom. Devastatingly this beautiful girl didn’t make it even after working so hard to save her life. I want to thank you for your kind words and support. This is the heart-wrenching truth, every day is a battle to stand up and speak for those who cannot speak for themselves. Now more than ever we need to work together to make a difference and protect our Mother Earth. For more on how you can become a Wildlife Warrior visit www.wildlifewarriors.org 💙🙏🏼

Agregó que sus padres dedicaron el Hospital de Vida Silvestre y el zoológico a la memoria de su abuela, y continuarán así, siendo guerreros de la vida silvestre, salvando tantas vidas como puedan.

Aseguró que cuentan con un equipo increíble que trabajan día y noche para proteger a los animales y remarcó que cada día es una batalla para levantarse y hablar por aquellos que no pueden hablar por sí mismos.

Our @AustraliaZoo Wildlife Hospital takes in animals from all over Australia. Hundreds of grey-headed flying foxes, a species listed as vulnerable, have been flown to Queensland after the rescue centre they were recovering in was at risk from fire and evacuated. Some of the orphans are now being cared for by the team at the hospital until they’re big enough to go home, and there’s no threat of fire. 🦇 In September, flying fox admissions to the hospital skyrocketed by over 750% due to drought conditions and lack of food. Flying foxes are now being drastically affected by wildfires and we’re again seeing an influx of these beautiful animals from across the country. This week, we treated our 90,000th patient. To cope with so many animals being admitted to the hospital, in 2019 we opened a sea turtle rehabilitation centre, sea snake ward and are about to complete a new bird recovery area, but it’s still not enough to keep up. We need to build a new ward for our patients. Wildlife Warriors from around the world are asking how they can help us save native wildlife, you can donate on our website www.wildlifewarriors.org , or support our fundraiser to start construction of our newest ward by visiting the link in my bio! 💚
