Australian Bushfire Relief

Australia, its people, wildlife and environment, continue to battle with the tragic loss of life and devastation caused by the bushfires, and whilst we can’t begin to replace what has been lost, Geotechnics, Chadwick Geotechnics and Tonkin + Taylor can help those affected and those involved in the massive disaster recovery effort that lies ahead.

Consequently, we are donating $AU50,000 towards the Foundation for Rural & Regional Renewal (FRRR) and Wildlife Victoria to support the recovery and relief efforts for communities and wildlife impacted by bushfires.

General Manager of Tonkin + Taylor Australia Richard Hancy says, “We recognise the impacts on people and communities from the bushfires have been massive and are ongoing. Recovery efforts for rural communities will be complex and pose challenges unique to each individual area. Communities need support to do what is right for their unique situations."

“The FRRR provides grants to local not-for-profit groups for community-led projects that address the most pressing needs that emerge 12-18 months after a disaster event. We hope that our donation to FRRR will go some way towards helping to accelerate the recovery and meaningfully supporting those affected”.

“Millions of hectares of Victoria and New South Wales have burned. Managing Director of Chadwick Geotechnics, Tim Chadwick says, “those areas are so much more than just land and forest, they are natural habitats and ecosystems.

“That’s why we are also donating money for ecological restoration to support the rebuilding of enclosures and equipment lost in the fires and animal rescue and care projects.  There are significant natural habitats and endangered and at-risk species under threat, urgent action and support is critical”. 

Geotechnics, Chadwick Geotechnics and Tonkin + Taylor extends our deepest appreciation to the fire-fighters and emergency workers and our heartfelt best wishes for a successful recovery.
