Bushfires unlike anything seen before are blazing across Australia, leaving homes and entire habitats torched in their wake. In all, about 15 million acres have burned across the country – an area roughly the size of West Virginia. The number of animals that have perished as a result, on the other hand, will make you wince.
Australia typically has a fire season that runs from December to March, but human-caused climate change has made this year’s season particularly catastrophic. With resources low in all regards, organizations in Australia need all the financial help they can get to can stop the fires, help people in need, and save as many animals as possible.
If you feel inclined to help, there are a number of organizations that will gladly accept any donations—from fire departments to conservation groups. You can find a detailed list of all these organizations in the source article here.
