Australian Bushfire Crises
Our hearts are heavy with sadness watching many areas of our beautiful country burn. Our love, thoughts & prayers go out to all those who have been affected by all these catastrophic bushfires.
We would personally like to thank all our extremely brave fire fighters for their dedication and devotion during this fire crises.
They selflessly risk their lives each & every day to help protect us all & our beautiful country.
We would also like to take this opportunity to thank all the wildlife carers, vets & volunteers who are helping our precious wildlife – our iconic, symbolic wildlife of Australia has literally been decimated in their millions.
According to Professor Chris Dickman at Sydney University who has estimated that more than 1 Billion Animals including mammals, birds & reptiles may be affected by the bushfires. Over a billion would be a very conservative figure. Stuart Blanch scientist from WWF (World Wildlife Fund Australia) agreed with Dickman’s assessment.
Professor Chris Dickman told the ABC (Australian Broadcasting Channel) that animals had been killed either directly by the flames or could be killed indirectly by the lack of food, water & shelter resources in the burned environment, as well as by predators such as wild (non domesticated) cats & red foxes.
The Australian bushfire crises has left many feeling helpless & overwhelmed, though by providing donations (irrespective of the size) &/or volunteering all helps immensely.
