BUSH FIRE EMERGENCY IN AUSTRALIA
A state of emergency has been declared in NSW. When the fires clear, we will need to restore what has been lost.
Right now, Australia is burning. The nation is being ravaged by the most devastating bushfire seasons the country has ever seen.
So far, more than 6 million hectares of Australian land has been burned. That’s more than the Amazon and Californian fires combined. At least 21 people have died and over 1700 homes lost. We are greatly saddened by the loss of life and homes, as well as the injuries suffered in the bushfires.
NSW has declared a state of emergency, Victoria is in a state of crisis, and fires are raging in South Australia, Kangaroo Island and Western Australia.
We’ve seen almost four million hectares already burnt in NSW alone. And while trees burn, our wildlife also suffers.
It’s been estimated that half a billion animals have been killed just in New South Wales. This includes the death of thousands of koalas and other iconic species such as kangaroos, wallabies, kookaburras, cockatoos and honeyeaters, with many more injured, and countless are now homeless
The catastrophic megafires are worsening the extinction crisis we’re already facing.
You can help WWF-Australia get emergency funds to care for injured wildlife, and when the fires clear, help restore homes for koalas and other animals that has been lost.
We would like to do our part for all the helpless animals in Australia dealing with the catastrophic bushfires, so we are donating 100% of profits from sales of this brew to wwf.org.au
