Devastating News: Half A Billion Animals Have Perished In Australian Bushfires

It's hard to share such devastating news. 

It has been reported that nearly 500 million animals have perished since the start of the raging fires. 

500 million. That's half a billion. 

According to the University of Sydney, ecologists now estimate 480 million mammals, birds and reptiles have tragically been lost since September. 

Entire species of plants and animals are endangered of being completely wiped out. 

If you're unsure just how insanely large this fire really is, The Guardian has published an interactive map stating the scale of the fire is 1.5 times the size of Belgium, just to give some perspective. 

We pray this horror ends soon without any more damage to the wildlife.

Welcome To The Kangaroo Sanctuary Of Central Australia

In 2015, Brolga, an Australian man who was living out in the bush with his family of kangaroos, decided to build a 188-acre sanctuary for kangaroos in Central Australia. His vision was to rescue, rehabilitate and release orphaned baby kangaroos back into the wild and to serve as a refuge for all kangaroos that have been raised by wildlife carers and cannot be released back into the wild due to injury and to provide them with good quality of life. 

Brolga was approached by the BBC UK in 2011 and was asked if he would be interested in making a documentary about his work with kangaroos. Brolga thought this would be a great way to raise more awareness about the plight of kangaroos orphaned by highway accidents and about kindness towards animals around the world. The BBC went on to make the documentary Kangaroo Dundee which was a huge success.  Kangaroo Dundee has just completed its third series which aired in 2016.  

On its Instagram page, the sanctuary shares some cute photos and videos of baby kangaroos.

Kangaroos Hopping Around In Snow Prove The World's Gone Crazy: 10 GIFS and Images

It's official now: the world has started to get a bit whacky. We have been seeing hints of this for a while, as feral hogs took over the minds of innocent Twitter denizens; I don't think Trump has been doing much to help the situation; and surely this 50 meter long penis near Geelong, Australia isn't normal (what's going on Australia?). My point is, weird things are happening. And they got even weirder when a video emerged of a mob of kangaroos hopping around on the snow. Wait - what? Snow? Australia? Kangaroos? Something is wrong.
