Thirsty kangaroos heading for the birdbath in Pacific Haven

PACIFIC Haven couple Jim and Louise Moore have lived at their two-and-a-half acre Burrum River property since 1999.

The two are worried the latest dry spell is having a devastating effect on local wildlife and bushland.

Mrs Moore said thanks to empty dams and hot dry weather, thirsty kangaroos, goannas, possums and wild ducks were being forced to survive on the couple's birdbath water.

"We're all in drought and they need help," she said.

"We've put in beautiful gardens which are dying in front of us.

"You wouldn't believe you were looking at the same garden."

Mrs Moore said it hadn't rained at their home since September.
