Australia is blessed with some of the most unique wildlife and environments in the world. Many of its wildlife is endemic — marsupials and monotremes like the kangaroos, koalas, echidnas and platypuses are found nowhere else on the planet.
However, climate change is having a devastating impact to the Australian environment. Longer droughts and higher temperatures are bringing about catastrophic bushfires, damaging wildlife and ecosystems.
Here in Australia, FOUR PAWS aim to protect Australian animals— native wildlife and companion animals — to prepare for climate disasters and other animal welfare issues.
