Update: Prayers are being answered and it is currently raining in parts of Austrailia/ however funds are required and will be required for rescue ad well as much painful rehabilitation of animals. Please continue helping: donating/praying. *In the Australian bushfires, Over ONE BILLION animals have lost their lives to the most painful death: Being burnt alive. *⁣ ⁣ ⁣ what a devastating start to the new decade. This is one of the most heartbreaking tragedies to occur in my lifetime. Over one billion animals/birds have lost their lives- this is not counting the ones in unimaginable pain from severe burns as well as the fatalities that will occur from injuries, dehydration, starvation and more fires (the outback is still very much ablaze). The internet is filled with images of charred animals, and the ones rescued have a fear in their eyes that should awaken us all. They feel pain, fear and loss exactly the way we do except they don’t have the means to help themselves. Many are citing climate change as the cause of the fires being the worst in decades however that’s another conversation. Right now prayers are of course needed but so are donations. This is our planet, it is on fire and it is our collective responsibility to contribute. Men and women are risking their lives to rescue and rehabilitate wildlife, PLEASE help them. These are a few pages I have found via @blackjaguarwhitetiger where you can donate. Also, a simple google search will lead you to several gofundme pages (please verify their authenticity before donating).⁣ ⁣ @portmacquariekoalahospital ⁣ @nswrfs ⁣ @1300koalaz⁣ @wireswildliferescue⁣ @wildlifewarriorsworldwide⁣ @thekangaroosanctuary⁣ ⁣ ANY AMOUNT YOU DONATE WILL HELP.⁣ It has been a tragic era for Mother Earth, from climate change, poaching, over-hunting, over-mining, Co2 emissions, Amazon fires and now this.
