On behalf of the Centre for Australian Studies we would like to express our deepest concerns in regards to the disastrous bushfire events currently unfolding in Queensland and NSW, Victoria, South Australia and parts of Western Australia. The environmental, cultural and social impact of the current fires cannot be overestimated. In the short- and long-term, the Australian continent will be seriously affected in ways that are yet unforeseeable.
The Centre for Australian Studies stands with its friends and colleagues and expresses its heartfelt sympathies with all those affected. We are and will be strongly committed to help.
For immediate support, we encourage donations to one of the following charities:
WWF Bushfire Emergency
Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery
Fire Relief Fund for First Nations Communities
NSW Rural Fire Service
