Bargo Dingo Sanctuary & Australian Wildlife Sanctuary


Most people have probably seen something in the news about the horrible bush fires Australia is experiencing, especially in NSW.

One of the fires not far from me, the Green Wattle Creek fire, swept through or around several townships, destroying dozens of homes.

Over at Face Book, I shared a post a few days ago about the Bargo DingoSanctuary and the fires. The dingoes did survive thanks to the volunteers who care for them.

The sanctuary itself though didn't do too well and every building was destroyed. Their neighbour, the Australian Wildlife Sanctuary also suffered badly from the fires.

As a not for profit volunteer organisation, the Dingo Sanctuary can accept donations to help rebuild.

If you think you can help even a little bit and would like to know more follow these links for their FB page and their website.

There are also Go Fund Me campaigns at the links below.

A Question about Groups and Eclipse

Mon Jun 3, 2019, 1:55 AM
I'm interested to get the opinions of people so please leave comments with what you think. NOT just comments bagging Eclipse please - although I probably feel the same way that's not what this is about.

Nothing has really been said yet by DA about how groups will operate under Eclipse.

My group :iconheavens-on-earth: is up for renewal for super group status.

Donations through my points widget have been really slow meaning I will have to pay for most of it if I renew.

I have several groups up for renewal in the next 6 months. It's going to be really expensive for me personally to do them all.

Is it going to be worth it? Should I bother?

It would be great if someone who knows would say something - hint hint - spyed danlev Heidi tagged as the 3 main people I've seen commenting with some actual knowledge - and I've read every official journal I can but have seen almost nothing about groups.

If I can't get an official response - can anyone direct me to anything that has been said officially?
