Greek Wildlife Group Can’t Cope with Injured Animals Cases

ATHENS – The Athens-based wildlife conservation group ANIMA is appealing for help to deal with what it said is an overwhelming number of cases of injured animals that need treatment.

The organization has an animal first-aid center in the Athens neighborhood of Kallithea and it treated more than 10,000 in 2021, compared to 6,300 the year before and in 2022 has seen cases jump 30 percent in June from the previous year.

“We are alarmed because the numbers are simply unmanageable in the present circumstances,” Maria Ganoti, the driving force behind the nonprofit organization, which treats injured animals from all over Greece told Kathimerini.

“Everything has become more expensive and we have just 15 employees right now. The payroll costs, travel expenses and overhead are what’s burning us, because the rest of our needs are covered by donations in kind,” said Ganoti.
