With 52 wildfire fronts burning currently across Greece, the Association for the Protection and Welfare of Wildlife ANIMA appeals to citizens to help wildlife that is at risk. Of course, it is not only the wildlife at risk, as many dogs and cats also have sought refugee in wooded areas near cities, or have been abandoned in the forests away from the cities.
Over 52 wildfires are still burning in Greece, with most of them in wooded areas where many wild animals live and have certainly been trapped or even burned to death.
The Association for the Protection and Welfare of Wildlife ANIMA calls on all citizens of the country and asks anyone who sees any animal (turtles, hedgehogs, snakes, reptiles, foxes and every animal) in bad condition or injured by the fire to immediately contact phone .
The line will be in operation 24 hours a day and the volunteers of the organization will be available for any occasion required.
Many of the birds of Mountain Ymittos have moved to Glyfada suburb of South Athens. Therefore, please, put a bowl of water and food somewhere in the balcony, garden or porch for the birds. It is the least we can do for the birds that lost their forest home on Friday’s wildfire.
Please, share and cross-post!
BTW: ANIMA is always in need of old newspapers for the cages of the injured birds it hosts. ANIMA phone number: 210-9510075 .
We in Australia know what a bush fire is –
Our hearts go out to you all.
