A big ask from Down Under: FLIR
G'day from Down Under, I do most of my posting on this forum over on the holsters list.
A big ask: locals here in Queensland, Australia, are doing their very best to save koalas (they're not bears; no, you can't hunt them) that have been either hit by cars, or attacked by feral cats and dogs.
When injured they go to ground, and this mob then tries to find them in the dark using flashlights.
They would be much better off with FLIR (forward looking infrared), but there are no local makers, and all my USA contacts in that area have long ago dried up.
Anyone here have connections with a maker who would give them the lend of a FLIR item for evaluation, with the prospect of them buying them in future for wildlife rescue?
Hopefully I've posted this in the right area, don't want to be off-topic.
Re: A big ask from Down Under: FLIR
I really wish I could help. I've been donating to the rescue efforts of koalas (and many other animals) pretty much ever since my first job. I however have no experience with this equipment or any contacts that do.
Best of luck in your efforts!
