INFERNOS have destroyed the habitat of creatures across the New England North West.
Blazes have raged in Moonbi, Wytaliba, Tenterfield and Ebor, taking with them thousands of hectares of bushland once inhabited by wildlife.
Without any rain it will be difficult to recover, Northern Tablelands Wildlife Carers coordinator Kelly Stumbles said.
"A lot of animal and plant species have been lost and it will impact the environment greatly," she said.
"The sheer amount of habitat that's been destroyed is shocking, we've had carers affected by it, we haven't had many animals come in yet but that's because the fires are too hot and they're still going."
So far the number of animals that have been taken to licensed wildlife carers in the region is low.
With a number of the fires still burning out of control, there has been little opportunity to scour the fireground for injured animals.
Ms Stumbles was handed a threatened species greater glider, it survived the fires but its habitat was cut down when the tree was deemed unsafe.
The most important thing is for animals that have been near fire to be brought to a wildlife carer as soon as possible, she said.
"Burns need cream and dressing, and animals will need oxygen so we work with our vets the best we can to save them," she said.
New England Camel Co owner Naomi Hooper has had to evacuate animals due to the spate of bushfires.
"A lot of the paddock these camels were on is burnt out now, it's really tough all around," she said.
"There's so many people working so hard out there and the firies are amazing.
"Damo [the camel] would like to say a huge thank you."
Injured wildlife should be reported to WIRES or taken to a veterinarian.
