A devastating 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck the countries of Turkey and Syria on Monday, February 6, 2023.
Search and rescue efforts continue in spite of overwhelming logistical challenges and severe winter weather. We are working with local animal rescue teams in the hardest-hit communities and, with our help, they are taking action on the following priorities:
- Emergency interventions for displaced animals
- Veterinary triage for injured animals
- Field assessments to identify unmet animal needs
Rescue teams will be working for the next few weeks, if not months. The road to recovery will be long.
Monthly giving is the best way to support IFAW in these ongoing efforts. Your steady, reliable support will enable our disaster response teams to be ready whenever and wherever they’re needed, and provide support for long-term recovery for animals in need all over the world. Make your gift today.
