Since the weekend, the community of Bunyip and surrounds have been affected by a bushfire crisis. Properties have been lost and people have been evacuated. Currently, more that 2,000 firefighters are at work to put an end to it.
One of the devastating consequences of bushfire is the loss of livestock and animals, including horses. To help out, people have offered their services to accommodate horses as well as feed them.
Bunyip Bushfire Animal Rescue has 115 active members who are offering their services, including helping to put out spot fires, paying for petrol and delivering hay.
The current base of operations is the Dragons Soccer Club in Druoin, across the road from the official relief centre. Many people have offered their own land as well.
If you or someone you know either needs a hand or would like to help, go here.
