RRANA have put buckets of water out and about in a few local parks for the animals to drink from during the harsh drought conditions and hot days. 

The group are calling for donations of water containers to be used to transport the water to the parks when the water buckets are cleaned and refilled. 

RRANA has placed ten water buckets across town, four in the North Pool Park and six in the Duff Street Park as they are the most popular among wildlife. 

RRANA’s Stephanie Jones said the water buckets are being changed every second day.

“We’re using between 60 to 100 litres so it’s being put to good use,” she said.

“People have been cleaning and refilling the buckets for us, so they must’ve seen what we’re doing and helping us out.

“The water is for the birds as well not just kangaroos, just any animal that needs the water,” she said. 

“We’re just taking care of them in the heat, they’re having a hard time with the drought so a drink of water is quite welcome I think.”

RRANA would be incredibly grateful for any contributions, whether it be food, water containers or monetary. 

They also wished to thank everyone who has made donations of food for the kangaroos. 

Monetary donations for kangaroo feed for those in pre-release can be made directly into RRANA’s bank account - BSB, 082 937, Account Number, 873588528 or at NAB Bank.
