Call for action for Australia
The raging bush fires in Australia have devastated people and wildlife in unprecedented ways. A human disaster as well as an ecological disaster, and a naturalist's worst nightmare given Australia's unique wildlife.
Our hearts go out to our Australian friends, and we want to show support by means of a few humble actions:
- We will run a call for action banner across the site for several days
- We will run a 2 day homepage takeover where only Australian wildlife photos get promoted
- We will explore additional ways to call for attention via social channels and our newsletter
- JungleDragon will commit to make a 200 USD donation start
How to help
Please consider the following video made with love by JungleDragon moderator Christine Young and her husband David Young:
Consider donating what you can, even if a small amount. Any bit helps. Whilst you are free to donate to a cause of your choice, the following are highly recommended:
Whether you can donate or not, in any case it is most helpful to make noise. Tell your friends and family, share the cause via social channels, please.
As a reminder of what is at stake, we encourage you to explore thousands of wonderful wildlife photos taken in Australia and a collection of over 1,800 species documented in Australia. A tiny subset of the vast and unique biodiversity found in Australia.
