Queensland Floods

Queensland Australia has had massive flooding since late December.  According to the Queensland Governmental website three quarters of the state is now considered a disaster area.  Local wildlife rehabilitators have been hammered by the twin challenges of increased admissions and keeping their centers safe and dry.  Rehabilitators are further hampered by the lack of appropriate food, especially fresh fruit, since the floods have destroyed many area farms and shops.
