Help for the kangaroos

We received an email from Australia beginning of January 2020. Brenna Jensen, owner of the Australian online shop Woollykins and longtime disana customer asked for help.

There are countless animals that lost their lives with the catastrophic fires in Australia. Animals that survived couldn’t find enough food because complete living spaces have been destroyed. Small kangaroo babies lost their mothers and with this also the protecting pouch.

Local wildlife carers got in touch with Brenna when they were searching for natural fibers for the kangaroo’s sensitive skin. Brenna created a pouch out of used disana tie-on nappies and brushed cotton liners from her two-year old daughter. The small kangaroos loved this prototype so much that many volunteers wanted to sew more pouches for them.

Now we came into play. Brenna asked for tie-on nappies, brushed cotton liners and boiled wool fabric. Due to a production here on site, we were able to react quick and produced the needed articles.  Several boxes full of helpful products hit the road to Australia only a few days later.

We received absolute positive feedback 1-2 weeks later from Brenna and the wildlife carers. The kangaroo babies love their new pouches and the carers on site are very grateful. Wonderful pictures reached us and brought a smile on the faces of our employees.

However, wildlife is still needing our care and support, many animals are killed on the roads and often their young survive for a while in the pouch so people check the pouches of road kill for babies and if found the local wildlife carers come to rescue and rehabilitate them back into the wild. Like Robyn and Amber these are mostly independent, self-funded carers who provide this service.

Voices from Australia:

How things have changed since the fires with this worldwide pandemic! However, wildlife is still needing our care and support, many animals are killed on the roads and often their young survive for a while in the pouch so people check the pouches of road kill for babies and if found the local wildlife carers come to rescue and rehabilitate them back into the wild. Like Robyn and Amber these are mostly independent, self-funded carers who provide this service. Your support has been amazing, it has enabled this particular sanctuary to take on many more animals and also train others in the area to care for injured wildlife.

Dear Brenna,

"Mariah" loves her new pouch!!! It's a cold and wet day and she is so snuggly after being out in the wild windy weather....Thank you! Mariah was the first of the incoming joeys at the

start of the drought and fires last year. She was found alive inside the dead mother’s pouch (hit by car) by 2 lovely ladies who stopped to check. We were called to help and Mariah was just over 1kg. So, we call our sanctuary Mariah's Mountain.
