Animal lovers can support ongoing Australian wildlife rescue and rehabilitation by WIRES 2024 calendar.
The much-loved Australian organisation has announced the release of the WIRES 2024 calendar, which features a range of the country’s unique native animals.
On the cover of next year’s calendar is a little feathertail glider that was rescued by WIRES after a suspected cat attack.
WIRES’ wildlife vet, Dr Tania Bishop, says the photo sets the tone for a year of wildlife wonder and resilience.
“I took the photo as it was the first time she’d eaten,” says Dr Tania.
Every purchase of the WIRES 2024 calendar contributes directly to helping sick, injured, and orphaned native animals across Australia.
