As the bushfires on the east coast of Australia rage on the wildlife remain in extreme danger. Peter the koala came from the Crestwood/Lake Innes fireground and has burns to his hands, feet and singeing on 90% of his body. He looks brown due to the effects of radiant heat on his fur. The Koala Hospital Port Macquarie are giving him and all the other injured wildlife they can find the best possible care.
So far today the @nswrfs has issued eight emergency warnings for bushfires across the state and there are more then fifty fires burning in NSW, most of them uncontrolled. The changing winds moving up NSW north-east coast this evening are expected to create significant danger. The fires have also led to a significant worsening of air quality as smoke haze drifts through NSW and south east Queensland.
You can donate to the GoFundMe for Port Macquarie Koala Hospital. The hospital estimates as many as 350 koalas have died. It is raising funds to purchase and distribute automatic drinking stations to reduce further death from dehydration. https://www.gofundme.com/f/help-thirsty-koalas-devastated-by-recent-fires

Authorities in Zimbabwe are planning on migrating thousands of animals away from the country’s south where drought has caused thousands of animals to be at risk due to starvation.
Hundreds of animals have already died but permits have now been granted for the relocation of 600 elephants, 2000 impalas, 50 buffalos, 40 giraffes, a pack of wild dogs and two prides of lions.
Ms Farawo of Zimparks states "This is the biggest translocation of animals in the history of wildlife movement here because we are talking of distances of more than 1,000 kilometres."
The Animals will be relocated to to Chizarira National Park, Sapi National Park and Mavuradonha Wilderness Safari Area.

This quote from Lily Tamlin always fill me up with dread.
In 20 to 30 years time, when kids will ask me about climate change, I want to make sure that my conscience will be clear, that I can tell them, without a doubt in my mind that i have try everything i could to stop the catastrophe.
Is it easy? No.
But what is your peace of mind worth? ...
