Australia Wildfire Relief Efforts – The WWF Needs our Help

A time of great peril hit Australia last year, with long months of devastating bushfires having caused catastrophic damages to the country. In an effort to contribute to fire relief, XM donated 16,200 AUD$ to World Wildlife Fund (WWF), whose aim is to establish a 30 million AUD$ Australian Wildlife and Nature Recovery Fund.

In order to support the noble cause of the WWF-Australia, our company’s contribution to fire relief efforts is both an act of raising awareness and a donation to help restore the affected wildlife and human habitats, as well as alleviate the huge natural losses suffered.

We are kindly inviting our clients and partners to also help, if they can.

If you would like to help, please visit the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) website and donate. -> Visit WWF and Donate Here

The ravaging bushfires sparked across Australia in June 2019, reached catastrophic proportions by September, with an uncontrollable blaze lasting for long months and continuing into early 2020. As the most catastrophic and longest bushfire season in Australian history and fueled by intensifying drought, the wildfires have by now caused invaluable damages in mainly Queensland, Victoria and New South Wales. The unprecedented damage destroyed an estimated over 10 million hectares of bush, forest and parks on the continent, destroyed thousands of homes, and killed over one billion animals, including endangered species.
