Wildlife Milk Wars. Every couple of years this raises it's head as carers battle it out over which milk they feed their animals. It's not just milk. Carers will argue till they fall over about heating, slurry, fluids, covid and even football. Discussion is good! Vendetta is not.

Sometimes it has been as blatant as a rescuer being a reseller of a particular food, other times it's because they have had a personal falling out. Maybe just boredom. But the impact can be catastrophic to small businesses, carers and animals.

The only people who make money in the end are the lawyers when they start cleaning up defamation claims. "I was just asking questions" is not a defence when you kill an animal or close down a small business. 

The opening salvo this time is a recent "anonymous" survey about cataracts in Kangaroo's. No one knows who has done the survey, it's entirely anonymous. Could be a reseller of one formula for all anyone knows? 

So to quote someone who actually knows what they are talking about, here is a comment from Fourth Crossing Wildlife - Australian Native Animal Information

-------
Quote

"The current survey on cataracts in joeys has not named the formula they are targeting, but it doesn't take a rocket scientist to know that they are referring to Biolac or Divetelact.   "Rumours" have been circulating for years based on the (unscientific) claims in Lynda Stakers macropod care guide which are clearly subjective findings.

"MARSUPIAL MILKS
Stephen Jackson (CSIRO Publishing) has written a paper titled "Marsupial milk, milk formulas and a comparison with monotreme and eutherian milk".

In it he writes (among other things):
Biolac contains levels (protein energy) approaching natural levels.
Biolac contains greater lip concentrations that closer approximate natural milk.

Biolac has galacto-oligosaccharides that are similar to those naturally found in marsupial milk and therefore more readily digested and likely to result in few problems such as diarrhoea.
There is NO mention of any milk formula being the cause of nutritional cataracts.

Why are ARC commenting? Because we support a lot of carers that are impacted by this (potentially unproven) panic. Also, the organisation they are targeting are good people that do a lot to help Wildlife, and much of this they do from their own pockets. It is a shame that a self destructive 1% of carers out there fixate on ways to harm the other 99% and the people that support them. 

So, lets hope this round of the Milk wars goes sensibly and with some facts.
ARC are pleased to be working with other large animal rescue orgs such as  Animal Welfare League NSW. 
These partnerships enable food supplies to reach more rescuers, benefiting more animals.

Can you volunteer some online time to help an animal rescue? Hit this link here

https://arcsupport.org.au/volunteer/

This is a true story. Yesterday a rescuer said to us "I just need someone to write an email, Im not sure what to say and I have all these roos to manage by midnight"

One of the biggest challenges for a busy rescuer is tiny pieces of paperwork, posting on social media, emails. Things that we do all day.

This is really common.
 - "I was asked to get an ABN. How do I get that?"
 - "I wish we had a few extra sets of hands" 
 - How do I make a simple logo (in Canva) "never heard of it"
 - "What do you mean a donate button"

You can see where we are going here. These are the most experienced, awesome and dedicated people with animals. We need to help them with the other 10%. The bits you can do without even knowing you are good at it. Most rescuers have been way too busy helping animals to also learn graphics arts or Tik Tok.

If you are sitting at home with a few hours of spare time every so often, use that to directly save lives and help rescuers. So if you are ok to help out with admin odd jobs hit that link.

Its pretty small stuff but it means so much

Hit this link here - https://arcsupport.org.au/volunteer/

There is so much stuff that gets done in animal rescue and at ARC hubs. But the one thing to remember is "it can be as little or as much as you like"

Most volunteers do ad hoc things like "im in a transporting chat and every few weeks if i see a job I can do I transport an animal"

Other volunteers will go to a hub and help out on a certain day.

Some will lurk in the background and then do a flurry of activity over a holiday.

What we are saying is.  . . . give it a crack.  it doesn't matter if you cant do something for months.  Hit the link, register your interest, there is no obligation and you will get experiences that will make crazy good XMAS stories.

Thank you for all the support you do helping animals and people everywhere.

Update 27/11 - the author of the survey has since updated it to be clear of the intentions of the survey and reduce the panic/noise that it has created. So we have now updated this post.

The author would not be aware that people have contacted the vendors in absolute panic asking if they need to stop feeding milk or if their milk is causing cataracts.

This has caused significant personal harm to the small businesses involved and absolute distress for the individuals who created them. As well as rescuers who are second guessing if they are poisoning their animals before anything has even been proven. 

Given the changes made, this post has been changed. We hope who the author is thinks about wording and considers the impact on others who are already struggling, and something like this sends them over the edge. 

Survey's are great, should be more of them, wording is important so it doesnt just speculate, damage the sector and in this case, a vendor/individual that gives a lot of free support to wildlife carers and bends over backwards to help.

Have some empathy for others and what you do to them. Wildlife rescue does not need to be a contact sport. 

##Update - for the record, ARC does not receive any funds or free milk from the vendor involved (and even if we did, we would give it to rescuers)## 

---------------
Updated Post

We've been made aware of a survey going around Wildlife carers about Milk

We aren't going to share the link to the survey so that people dont get caught up in it, but enough wildlife carers have seen it to be aware. The landing page is completely anonymous, there is no way to track the who made it.

As a very well known Kangaroo rescuer said

—If it was Created by a reputable educational institution they would put their name to it.

—They would also know that the cause of cataracts is more complex than milk formulas and not this simplistic approach.

— the implication that specific milks cause health issues can damage businesses providing a service to wildlife carers.

You do not need to change your formula because an anonymous website wrote a survey.

Please feel free to share with all other Wildlife carers.

Bra Hooks. Possibly one of the coolest requests this year. A wonderful request from @Gerang Gerang Wildlife

Stacey Whitehorse, one of the nicest conversations of the day. 

"The Wimmera river has been flooding and displacing reptiles and turtles in particular.  I need some reptile and turtle food if you have some. We have several turtles and reptiles in care.

I need bra hooks to repair turtle shells. Funny request l know. Maybe someone can help with the request?

So here is why.

Stacey learned about this methods as part of many years of wildlife care and attending global and local courses over the years.

When treating fractured turtle shells, it’s important for experts to stabilize the injury. Unstable fractures are painful for animals—just as they are for humans—and mobile shell fragments also will not heal. But there aren’t many specialized tools for treating severe turtle wounds.

You get creative

Enter the humble bra clasp. Wildlife experts glue the hooks and eyes of the clasps to opposite sides of a fracture, then wind a zip tie around the clasps to make sure the shells stay in place. Once the shells have mended, the clasps are removed and the turtles are released back into the wild.

Stacey had only one request. About $75 in marine food and some bra hooks. For a rescue doing such amazing work she didnt want to ask for much.

So we asked "what would be the one thing you have tried to get and cant"

A $200 night camera for catching vision of owls. That was all. She had asked with an agency but not been successful.

So off we went and fundraised an awesome owl camera. This will make a huge difference to the work at the shelter and we got to hear about the turtles and the bra hooks.

You can learn all about this amazing rescuer here - https://www.geranggerungwildlifeshelter.com/

Stacey thank you for everything you do and what you teach others about saving animals!

Australia Zoo medical n stuff donation - thank you to the awesome team!

We had an awesome run and donation over to the team at Australia Zoo this week, apologies for the low tech method of record keeping (yes, this goes into a real system) but we had a massive 5 pallets of medical to work through.

If you have product you want to donate to help animals hit this link www.arcsupport.org.au/donateproduct

Australia Zoo do not receive any government funding.  We were totally grateful to be able to meet the team and get supplies over to them as trauma season continues.

Rebecca from BARN in yesterday morning to help us go through all the medical donations this week and turn it around fast to get out the door. Donation stock turns are important, in one hand and out the other, straight to the animals that need them.

To donate to ARC hit this link www.arcsupport.org.au/donate

Rebecca also took some medical stuff with her (unfortunately no photos were taken as we had 5 pallets to go through) and it was a busy run.

We get some awesome visitors to the ARC Hubs and being able to help out the team at Australia Zoo is one of the many amazeballs parts of a great week. Thank you everyone for supporting ARC and animals in rescue.

📣 🆘PLEASE HELP - KOALAS ARE FACING LOCAL EXTINCTION!🆘
Did you know that koalas on the East Coast of Australia(home to the majority of koalas) were declared Endagered in February 2022?
Just one minute of your time could help change the course of natural history in Australia - for the better!  

Imagine being able to tell your grandchildren that YOU helped to SAVE koalas! 🐨 ❤️

It's easy! 
BUT - ONLY NSW RESIDENTS CAN SIGN - Petition link ⬇️
https://www.parliament.nsw.gov.au/la/Pages/ePetition-details.aspx?q=fqdTUicl4Yf6sP6t5qV0Vw&fbclid=IwAR24i95M7iT0uBK3LtT2OHY0kdxd_xSHWvd8Gk5KQPidnoCYzRdAM50B_4U

The petition has been put forward by Save Sydney's Koalas and requires 20,000 signatures to enable it to be debated in parliament. A further 7000 signatures are still needed - by early November 2022 - two weeks away..

IT IS ESSENTIAL that the matters raised in the petition are debated, and that NSW Planning apply their recommendations for Koala protections to the site - a minimum 425m wide Koala corridors along creeks and rivers with wildlife underpasses on busy Appin Road. 
These are absolutely essential measures to protect the koalas from road trauma and dog attacks as they try to navigate their now dangerous and unfamiliar habitat

This development in South Western Sydney is clearing beautiful old growth koala habitat trees and essential wildlife corridors, and WILL result in local extinction of the koala population if these measures are not implemented immediately 

Keeping the healthy, disease free Campbelltown koala population safe and healthy is very important  in helping the aim to double the koala population by 2050 - an essential goal in the road to preventing Koala Extinction. 

Could you please SIGN the petition and SHARE this post on your Facebook page and ask your family members and friends if they would sign and share it too? https://www.parliament.nsw.gov.au/la/Pages/ePetition-details.aspx?q=fqdTUicl4Yf6sP6t5qV0Vw&fbclid=IwAR24i95M7iT0uBK3LtT2OHY0kdxd_xSHWvd8Gk5KQPidnoCYzRdAM50B_4U

Thank you. 
Koalas everywhere need more protection. If we can get the right laws and protections in place for the Campbelltown koalas, it will lead the way for every other colony to be protected properly forever 

A poster with QR code link to the petition is attached if you would like to print these to drop some at your local cafe, school or gym. 

ARC are delighted to be part of the fabric that is the NSW Koala Rescue and Advocacy Family. 
Koala rescuers in NSW matter.

📣 A HUGE THANK YOU to the team at Service NSW Macquarie Park, and to ARC Fundraising Volunteer Jennifer White for your amazing donation of over:
‼️120 rolls of Cohesive Bandages valued at more than $400‼️ 

These were purchased with the generous donations from their recent 🏢💰Workplace Fundraiser - benefiting animals in need! 

These bandages are always in high demand by rescuers and carers, and are invaluable in the treatment of injured animals.

Jennifer approached ARC about holding a workplace fundraiser, with the donations raised being used to purchase an item that will be in high demand during the coming summer and breeding season when animals are much more on the move and sadly more likely to be involved in road trauma and fence collision incidents. 
Jennifer and the team decided that cohesive bandages would be their key donation item. 

From Jennifer:
“I was totally blown away as the money kept pouring in today. 
Donations were received from our local team, and also from visitors from other departments. 
One or two are also donating directly to ARC via the QR code. 

We had some visitors to our centre today from another department and they were out in the lunch room,  reading all the posters you made for us and were talking amongst themselves about how fabulous the ARC projects and the outcomes were.  

These people are from different parts of SNSW, and from all over Sydney. 

As I was doing the whip around for cash to buy bandages, one of them commented about how fabulous your work was and how great it was for us to have been involved…. Then she gave me $20 for bandages. 🙂  I am so wrapped with this”❤️

Jennifer very kindly dropped the bandages off at the ARC Leichhardt Hub yesterday, AND even helped out with loading some dog and horse food onto a horse float for one of our amazing rescues who arrived to collect! 

Jennifer has a lovely ARC Certificate of Appreciation and one of ARC Craft Guild member Jackie Hillyer’s wonderful wildlife drawings to take back to her colleagues at Service NSW. 

Awareness and education about the challenges encountered by our wildlife and companion animals,  and the requirements of animals in care are essential education that money can’t buy. 

🏢💰 A Workplace Fundraiser is a great way to start! 

The money raised helps animals in care, and the awareness raising can be of even greater value. 

Encouraging people to be responsible pet owners or maybe having them realise why it's so vital to 
⛔️Stop ✅Check and ☎️Call 
If you see wildlife who have been injured or killed.

Our wonderful ARC supporter, Jennifer who organised this fundraiser at her office, has had some very good ideas:

🧁- Themed morning teas - animal themed cupcakes for sale  
🐨- Koala Kilometres - a sponsored short walk near your workplace
🐶- Whose Pet is this? - Guessing competition   
📉- Placement of interesting and informative posters around lunch room walls (ARC can provide these ready for you to print!)
💻- Posting on the internal Facebook network, so the awareness campaign will be expanded there too.
💡The ideas are endless!
