Through the month of January Long Island Aquatic Club is swimming in support of
Australian wildlife. Australia is suffering through unprecedented bushfires. Ecologists at Sydney University have estimated over 800 million animals have been affected in New South Wales alone and over 1 billion animals in Australia since September. Long
Island Aquatic Club wants to help.
Australia may be 9,929 miles from New York but our swimmers are going to swim
10,000 yards to make a difference. Each member of LIAC will have the opportunity to
accept a challenge. Please support your athlete with a donation that will benefit
WIRES (NSW Wildlife Information, Rescue and Education Service Inc.) has been
rescuing and caring for wildlife for over 30 years and is the largest wildlife rescue
organization in Australia. They are passionate about supporting smaller volunteer

Veterinary Associations and other leading scientific and environmental groups.
