OK, bushfire in Australia is a common phenomenon, but the 2019-20 Australian bushfire is something the world hasn’t witnessed before. Record-breaking heat and drought, inflamed-lightning bolts, firing and lack of hazard reduction are the significant causes of tremendous loss the bushfires have inflicted so far, and with the flames still raging on it’s hard to predict how long this destructive season, that started back in August 2019 is going to last! And with the world’s attention on this fiery continent, people have been sending out helps as well as bringing attention to the open-ended challenges, and amongst them, this Irwin family is doing their best to help out the injured animals!
Late Steve Irwin’s daughter, Bindi Irwin, went on social media to hearten everyone that their family is safe and doing everything in their power and beyond to assist the animals in need.
The Irwin Family Is Unquestionably Leading The Late Steve Irwin’s Legacy!
Bindi Irwin posted a pic on her Insta account together with a message explaining the current conditions, “With so many devastating fires within Australia, my heart breaks for the people and wildlife who have lost so much. I wanted to let you know that we are SAFE. There are no fires near us or our conservation properties.”
But Regrettably, Their Homeland Australia Has Been Hit By A Disturbing Misfortune:
And As These Avenging Bushfires Destroy Millions Of Acres Of Land, The Irwin Family Is Busy Helping Out The Animals In Need!
Bindi mentioned about their bustling schedules for helping out the animals in need, “Our Wildlife Hospital is busier than ever though, having officially treated over 90,000 patients. My parents dedicated our Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital to my beautiful grandmother. We will continue to honor her by being Wildlife Warriors and saving as many lives as we can.”
Also, A Burnt Possum Had Been Brought For Treatment At The Wildlife Hospital, But Unfortunately, The Poor Animal Didn’t Make It Through As Bindi Explained:
“Blossom the possum was admitted to the Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital after being caught in one of the bushfires burning in other parts of Queensland. We have such an incredible team that works day and night to protect gorgeous animals like Blossom. Devastatingly this beautiful girl didn’t make it even after working so hard to save her life. I want to thank you for your kind words and support. This is the heart-wrenching truth, and every day is a battle to stand up and speak for those who cannot speak for themselves. Now more than ever we need to work together to make a difference and protect our Mother Earth”.
As the fiery flames continue to burn on, the numbers coming from the officials show the immense loss and damage the bushfires have inflicted on the continent. It is believed that 16,000,000 acres of land, along with 2,500 buildings, were burnt. Plus, as of 4th January 2020, twenty-four people have perished in the fires, and six others are reported missing in the state of Victoria!
And while everyone is putting their best efforts to fight the flames and help out those in need, we truly need an Aquaman. Because the environmental specialists are calculating the vast loss and impact the fires have had on the environment, and it’s predicted that half a billion animals have potentially lost their lives to the sparks or will likely starve due to the lack of the food source and habitat.
