Australia’s raging bushfires have caused destruction across the country, with the recent rain and cooler temperatures barely helping the situation. Land is engulfed in flames and helpless wildlife are suffering – over one billion animals have died and Koalas could be on the verge of becoming an endangered species, as 25,000 were killed when flames swept Kangaroo Island days ago.
