Almost half a billion animals killed in Australia’s wildfires: Report

Almost 500,000,000 have been killed in Australia's raging wildfires, and it is also feared that many of the species might have been entirely wiped out. Ecologists from the University of Sydney have estimated about 480 million mammals, birds and reptiles have been killed since the month of September and the numbers are more likely to rise. Koalas are among the hardest hit of Australia’s native animals because they are slow-moving and only survive on leaves from eucalyptus tree, which are filled with oil, making them highly flammable. Horrific pictures of kangaroos desperately attempting to flee the fires are also surfacing the internet. Src: https://bit.ly/2QnYsBv
