Wildlife Victoria has been inundated with more than 1,100 calls from members of the public in support of rescued animals in the past week.

The charity’s chief executive officer, Lisa Palma, said rescue teams are finding it difficult to reach much of the afflicted wildlife due to rising flood waters and road blockages.

“What we see across the state are large numbers of animals that are waterlogged, injured, displaced or stranded,” she said.

“A complicating factor for our wildlife at this time is that it’s spring and many wildlife have young pouches… making them particularly vulnerable to extreme weather.”

Rescuers were called in on Sunday to help a herd of Eastern Gray Kangaroos trapped by rising water in the Golburn Valley region.

One kangaroo joey was rescued by Wildlife Victoria volunteers and is now being cared for at a local shelter, although some were killed by cars after fleeing onto the road.
Palma said this latest flood crisis in northern Victoria and Tasmania is yet another blow to Australia’s native animals, which have suffered from multiple large wildfires and floods in recent years.
Nearly 3 billion animals, including mammals, reptiles, birds and frogs, died or were displaced during the country’s “Black Summer” wildfires in 2019-2020, according to World Wildlife Fund figures.

“That’s the challenge of natural disasters, which are becoming more frequent. The impacts on wildlife can last for a very long time,” Palma said.

Despite sunny weather in Victoria on Sunday, the State Emergency Service warned people to stay vigilant as river levels continue to rise.

Echuca is expected to experience two peaks of flooding, including one by Tuesday and another later in the week.
