The Lions Rugby Company and the Emirates Lions team want to support the fight against the bushfires in Australia and will be making a contribution to WIRES (Wildlife Information, Rescue and Education Service).
It is impossible to know how many animals have perished and it will be many months before the impact on wild populations can be better understood but ecologists at Sydney University have estimated over 800 million animals have been affected in Australia since September.
Every contribution, no matter the size, will definitely make an impact and your support would be greatly appreciated.
WIRES, based in New South Wales, need urgent assistance to help with these unprecedented emergencies.
The Emirates Lions will host a breakfast in Sydney ahead of their Vodacom Super Rugby match against the Waratahs (Wednesday, 26 February). All proceeds of the event will go to WIRES who have confirmed their attendance at the breakfast.
We urge you to open your hearts and your pockets and join us in helping this worthy cause. To donate, go to: https://www.wires.org.au/donate/emergency-fund
The Lions Rugby Co remains loyal to their chosen charities, namely Els for Autism and the Blue Pie Foundation, but will focus on Wires during the early part of Vodacom Super Rugby.
