Tree dwelling species like Koalas need to drink.

The Tree Troff is a conservation tool designed to help mitigate the impact of climate change and severe weather on arboreal wildlife by providing supplementary water.

"It is durable, practical, easy to install, easy to use," a Wires spokesman said.

Landowners, community groups and councils passionate about helping our native wildlife are being offered the opportunity to apply for a free arboreal drinker to install on their property. - A Wires spokesman

"The Tree Troff was developed over five years as an adjunct to research by the University of Sydney that found koalas used supplemented water extensively throughout the year.

"This is particularly frequent when extreme weather events dramatically reduce leaf water content, potentially leading to large-scale mortality due to dehydration.

"Not only do the drinkers help support koala populations, they are also highly beneficial to other nocturnal species.

"These include gliders, brushtail possums, tree frogs, geckos, goannas, pythons, microbats and owls plus an array of birdlife during daylight.

"Much has been written the Black Summer fires of 2019/20 and the tragic toll on wildlife.

"The drought, even in the absence of fire, left habitat severely compromised."

Donors from all over the globe want to help farmers to preserve precious native wildlife.
