    Australia's deadly wave of bushfires, which have been ravaging the country since September 2019 and have recently intensified, have reportedly claimed around 30 lives, destroyed more than 2,000 homes and killed over one billion animals.

    Thousands of baby bats left orphaned by the bushfires in Australia now need constant care.

    An Australian family who lives in Singapore and can’t go home immediately, are helping little animals by making pouches for them.

    The bushfires, unprecedented in their scale and intensity, have been burning across the country since September and have killed as an estimated 1 billion animals, many of which are unique to Australia.
