Wildlife Rescue South Coast Newsletter Feb 2017 out now

The first Wildlife Rescue South Coast Newsletter for 2017 is ready to be downloaded here 2017 has started exactly the same way 2016 finished ~ with extreme weather conditions and many are wondering what the year ahead has in store as last autumn was declared the warmest, spring the coolest and unfortunately January declared the hottest on record. The summer heatwaves continue into February with days over 40c & nights in the mid 20’s now seeming to be the norm on a weekly basis. All are suffering as many of our volunteers haven’t had a break especially the members that were rostered on the 24/7 hotlines, responding to calls, arranging rescues and organizing transportation for wildlife into rehabilitation, so it isn’t only the wildlife that need to cool off. Frogs absorb water through their skin so they don't need to drink but need to stay moist. Frogs are cooling off with a new home in the reptile section of the Wildlife Rescue South Coast website Presently there is a main page which describes the frog’s life cycle, threats including the deadly Chytrid fungus, what you can do to help as well as some important froggy sites. This page will continue to grow in the weeks ahead and to help you get ready to give a frog a home, WRSC’s FSC regional co-ordinator Danie has reviewed and updated a fact sheet on frog friendly native plants for ponds and bogs of the NSW South Coast. Wildlife Rescue South Coast Inc also say ‘thank you’ to the many generous donations received over the Christmas holiday break, all of which go directly towards helping us help wildlife. Please if you make a donation, especially by direct debit, email the bank confirmation receipt to and tell us why and/or the species you wish the donation to go towards. We want to thank you, we want your donation to go to the intended recipient and we want to send you a tax deductible receipt. We can’t do it without you. We hope you enjoy reading February’s Wildlife Rescue South Coast Newsletter. Wildlife Rescue South Coast Inc
