Catastrophic fires, the worst drought in history, and record high temperatures are taking a tragic toll on Australian wildlife.

On January 10, 2020, Massachusetts Author, Stacy Padula of Plymouth announced that 50% of January’s proceeds from two of her best-selling novels will be donated to WIRES Australian Wildlife Rescue Organization. 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 NSW and over 1 billion animals in Australia since September. 

50% of January’s proceeds from my books Gripped Part 2: Blindsided & Gripped Part 3: The Fallout will go to WIRES Australian Wildlife Rescue Organization: a highly reputable Australian nonprofit that is saving koalas, kangaroos, and other Australian wildlife from the devastating fires spreading throughout the country. Please help us support this cause!

Gripped 2 & 3 are available for purchase through Barnes & Noble, Amazon, Walmart, and other major retailers. Easy order links and previews of the novels are below. If you cannot support this cause, please consider sharing this article. There are many helpless koalas, kangaroos, and others who need our help!
