Fires are nothing new in Australia, but they have been growing more intense and becoming more destructive in recent years, a problem that has been worsened by climate change. And It’s sad to know places like in this photo of @officialshiulina in Australia are no longer flourishing. We all are living on this p
lanet like we have another one to go to. Ecosystems are built on balance and once one element is thrown off, everything is affected.
The blazes, which have been burning across Australia for months, have destroyed homes and wiped out many towns. Across Australia, nearly 18 million acres of land have been burned and much of it bushland, forests and national parks, home to the country's beloved and unique wildlife.
Nearly a billion animals have been impacted by the fires, with millions potentially dead. Koalas and kangaroos and bats are primarily killed directly by the fires. Getting incinerated in flames or choking on smoke. Nearly a third of all koalas have died and about a third of their habitat has been destroyed. These poor animals shouldn’t suffer for the decisions we make. Help by donating to credible sources like @wireswildliferescue @1300koalaz @karmagawa or even just spreading awareness. #australia #savethekoalas #savethekangaroos
