River Murray Response Day 12

As river levels rise, SAVEM continues to assist the Department of Environment and Water (DEW). DEW is leading this response with SAVEM assisting with veterinary assessment of wildlife. This work takes place from two- or three-person boats, piloted by very experienced DEW boat drivers. Peak river level is expected on 14 December, after which time the water is expected to recede a little, before a second expected peak later in December.

Please see the DEW website to report wildlife in distress here. Visit https://www.sa.gov.au/topics/emergencies-and-safety  for information about river levels and other PPRR activities.
