Reflections for Australia's wildlife

ABC and Australian Wildlife Society are encouraging the community to hold a moment of reflection, with the sounds of nature, to honour Australia's lost wildlife. 

The 2019-2020 Summer bushfires is recognised as the worst wildlife disaster in modern history. Three billion animals were killed or displaced.  When we lose loved ones, we hold funerals as a ritual to help process the loss. That is why ABC and Australian Wildlife Society is encouraging Australians to hold a reflection event in the days following the broadcast of Wild Australia: After the Fires which aired on ABC and iview on Tuesday, 1 December, 8:30 pm.  Hold a moment of reflection with others, then have a constructive discussion about how you can play a part in protecting our precious native wildlife.

Use the resources in the guide below to plan, promote, and host a Wild Australia moment of reflection event or hold a personal moment of reflection to honour Australia's lost wildlife.
