As you are probably well aware by now, Australia is enduring it’s hardest year of bushfires and climate related issues in history. Paired with lack of available funding and support, Australian’s all over the country are suffering.
It’s incredibly heartbreaking to see how Australia has been destroyed over the last few weeks. The entire country is on fire. These fires are 500% larger than the Amazon fires.
Even if you don’t live in Australia, your breathing air is going to be affected negatively now. We have lost over HALF A BILLION animals in the last few weeks, homes and lives have been lost and thousands are stranded on beaches as the army now go in to try to rescue civilians without food or water or homes or power.
Many are having to just stand in the ocean to avoid the heat and smoke as best they can. This is the sad reality of Australia in 2020. There are many places to donate supplies and funds linked below.
