Australia is on fire. It’s now official. We have a climate emergency. Over 500 million animals burnt alive or suffocated because of the fires that are wildly spreading across Australia. A lot of species are now considered extinct, both animals and plants. It’s heartbreaking to see all those animals die in agony.
As unfortunate as that is, tragedy brings out the best in people and the current situation in Australia is just the case. Millions of dollars have been donated. Dozens of wildlife rescue centers are now open across the country that rehabilitate animals injured in wildfires. Hundreds of people are out there right now fighting the fires and saving the animals.
These are their stories…
