As our last international volunteers are able to make their way back home, we have been lucky enough to welcome our local volunteers back to help us with our daily tasks. We have been so incredibly grateful for the volunteers who chose to stay and support us throughout such a difficult time. With flights canceled and border closures extended, it was difficult to visualize a time when they could get back to see their families. However, they have all been lucky enough to join repatriation flights which could get them all back to their respective homes. It has been hard work with so few volunteers but we could not have done it without them and we are so lucky to have had their help for the time that we did.
As cases continue to be discovered, measures are still in place to protect the community and so we remain closed to the public until further notice. The health of our staff, local volunteers, and animals are still our priority when managing life in the pandemic.
Despite the drop in help, we have still been busy rescuing, rehabilitating, and releasing animals. As we reach the middle of the year, we have already rescued nearly 200 animals which is close to being one of our busiest years yet!
