With the recent bushfires causing major damage to our wildlife, some Henley Brae residents have been helping out by making pouches for orphaned joeys.

When young animals such as kangaroos or possums come into care, they need to be kept warm and quiet. Several residents have been knitting pouches and others making the special liners.

They’ve then provided these to the animals in need through the WIRES program.
