Queensland floods

Many thanks¬† to all those who have contacted us to ask how we’re faring in the floods (I’ve answered each personally as well).

Our house, Wildlife Ecology Centre and nature trails are high enough above the creek not to have been affected (although we did have to dig some extra drains to divert water racing down from Mt Chinghee towards the house), and we always have plenty of stored food.

We’ve had to cancel tours of course, and have been hemmed in by flooded bridges, but otherwise we’re fine.

People in Brisbane and Toowoomba are suffering badly, and so are many animals.  The RSPCA is taking donations to help both domestic and wild animals displaced or injured in the floods. The ABC Floods Emergency site is a good source of information, including ways you can help victims
