3. David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Kenya

The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust is considered the most successful elephant and rehabilitation rescue in East Africa. Unfortunately, these majestic creatures are still widely poached, along with their not-too-distant-cousin the Black Rhino, endangering both species. This rescue’s “Orphan’s Project” works to reintegrate orphans back into the wild in Tsavo.

4. BatsQLD Flying Foxes & Microbats Inc.

Bats fall under the category of “so ugly, they’re cute.” And a few minutes on this feed will have you convinced. A self-funded volunteer group, its members are dedicated to educating the public on bats and flying foxes. They work diligently on habitat conservation projects, and the rescue and rehabilitation of injured, ill and orphaned bats up until release back into the wild.

In the name of everyone at BatsQLD, Pantaloons says thank you and gives a big hug to everyone who has made a donation. With the help of all our followers who were donating, liking and sharing our pictures and spreading the word, we raised an incredible amount of $5407 during the month of May! We were really overwhelmed by this positive response. You guys are fantastic! Those vital funds will cover the cost of food for our furry friends for the entire year and takes a heavy weight off our carer’s shoulders who cover all expenses out of their own pocket. Over the last year, we did more than 400 rescues and had 300 animals in crèche at the end of baby season. Every furry patient needs approximately 300g of fruit per day and will usually be in care for a couple of weeks – which means a lot of fruit chopping and a big expense. Thanks to you, financially, we are now all set up for the next year and the upcoming baby bat season. We will keep you posted on our work, with more pictures and stories about our furry friends.

5. The Kangaroo Sanctuary

A lima bean – that is the size of a baby Joey when born. The Kangaroo Sanctuary is 90 acres of bushland home to 25 kangaroos. All lovingly cared for by Chris ‘Brolga’ Barns, the star of Kangaroo Dundee by AGB films. He hopes to build the first wildlife hospital in Central Australia on the grounds of this sanctuary.

6. International Animal Rescue

Literally meaning “person of the forest,” orangutans are rapidly losing their rainforest habitat to make way for community growth, farming, and industrial modernization.
