In September of 2019 an unfathomable crisis began for Australia. Wildfires consumed the continent leaving devastation in its place. The fires burned from September 2019 until March of 2020.
The wildfires burned more than 80% of the habitats of around 50 endangered species. The total number of animals that have lost their lives has been estimated as one billion.
Australian cities were affected to the point where some days they had the worst air quality in the world. The number of human deaths are no where near the animal death toll but there were still causalities.
Drought was one of the biggest concerns for the fire season
2019 was the hottest & driest year for Australia in 120 years.
Human Induced Climate Change
Human Induced Climate Change is not only affecting Australia's wildlife but many other continents. The Amazon in 2019, California fires just about every year. Even in our own neck of the woods fires are becoming more and more common.
Our Planet is in trouble, this will not be the last fire we will endure. Should we wait until it is in our own backyards to take action or are we going to start now?
