There’s a programme on Channel 4 tonight (Monday 3 February 2020) at 8pm that I’m not sure I really want to watch, but I can’t help feeling I should.
I am watching it and there are graphic images and footage, just to warn you.
Australia on Fire: Climate Emergency is the story of the battle to save Australia form the bushfires. It includes first-hand accounts from firefighters on the front line, and looks at the long-term impact of the fires on the animal population and ecology.
Drone footage show the extent of the devastation.
There’s also coverage of those who just escaped their burning properties – and we hear from those who have gone back to properties that are burnt out.
Thank you to all those everywhere who fought the fires and worked so hard and continue to work hard to help the animals in Australia.
The GoFundMe fundraiser for Port Macquarie Koala Hospital is still going (up to $7.7 million) and you can still donate to make a difference to Australian wildlife.
