TOMRA Collection Solutions has launched a nationwide appeal, and is hoping to raise $250,000 for the recovery effort.
Called 'Cans for Koalas' the appeal will run until August, with the money going to the WWF-Australia Wildlife Nature recovery Fund.
Money can be donated at any Return and Earn point in NSW.
ALSO MAKING NEWS:
All proceeds received through this initiative will go towards supporting veterinarians who are providing care and medical treatment to injured wildlife across Australia, providing food and water to animals in bushfire impacted regions and the restoration of habitats through tree planting projects.
"Like all Australians, we were saddened by the loss of over one billion Aussie animals including koalas, kangaroos and kookaburras in the most recent bushfires, and felt compelled to do what we can to help them recover," President of TOMRA Collection Solutions Australia, Ryan Buzzell said.
Following the recent success of our Bottles for the Bush campaign - which saw us double our original $250,000 donation target, - combined with the popularity of Container Deposit Schemes, we are hopeful that this initiative will engage the community and exceed our fund raising expectations."
WWF-Australia CEO Dermot O'Gorman said: "The devastation caused by these bushfires is unprecedented and the recovery work ahead is immense. The Cans for Koalas drive will help us continue to respond to affected wildlife and deliver long-term plans and actions to restore what has been lost."
