Australia Day

By Amy Sosbe 3 years ago

Australia day is marked every year on the 26th of January. It's a day to reflect on its history and to celebrate the nation, its achievements and most of all, its people.

We’ve all been shocked by the news about the awful bush fires, which have had devastating effects. More than 10 million hectares have been burnt, and this number continues to climb. That’s the equivalent of 40% of the entire UK. Lives, homes, and an estimated 1.25 billion animals have been affected, including 30% of the entire koala population in mid-north coast of New South Wales. For more information you can visit WWF’s website here.

In aid of this crisis and to mark today being Australia Day, we’re selling this adorable PDF - Print at Home Kangaroo knitting pattern for £1 and all proceeds taken up until the end of January will be donated to Wildlife Victoria's Victorian Bushfire Appeal (digital PDF pattern only). Donations to the Victorian Bushfire Appeal will be distributed to wildlife shelters and carers to help rebuild enclosures and equipment that they have lost in the fires so that they can continue their lifesaving work, and support those that are struggling to cope with the enormous number of animals that will need care in the coming weeks and months. You can read more about the charity here.

We’d love to see your knitted Kangaroos and Joeys and you can share your WIPS and finished projects over on our Facebook page. By adding the tag @wildlifevictoria you’ll also help to spread the word of the important work that Wildlife Victoria do.
