Very sad. Videos of burned animals are heartbreaking.

I did a little research on which wildlife rescue/hospitals could use a helping hand with $.

Some rescues already have the funding they need, this one is still needing financial help. They're treating burned koalas and other wildlife by the dozens:

Wildlife Victoria

$1 Austrialian dollar = $.65 U.S.

Here's a currency converter to see what a donation would be in U.S. dollars

Thanks for the efforts AU I don't have time to research.

Victorian Koalas are a bit richer now, maybe they can pour some eucalyptus leaves out for their homies.

Tragic, I think I will try to find a few bucks to send them, thanks for posting the thread RCADE. I don't say that very often, live on a fairly tight budget right now but this disaster blows my mind.

The funnel web spider hasn't been affected. The funnel web is the Chuck Norris of the animal kingdom.

I saw somewhere it was more like 20, but it's hard to come by any info on that because the leftwing media is trying to spin this as a climate change disaster.

Climate change led to the tinder box. All Australia needed was someone, or 20, to light the match.

Both factors can exist simultaneously, BOAZ.

Stupidity in one post

30 C
Average temperatures top 30 C (86 F) during summer and 15 C (59 F) in winter. Victoria's highest maximum temperature of 48.8 C (119.8 F) was recorded in Hopetoun on 7 February 2009, during the 2009 south-eastern Australia heat wave.

Are we only concerned about the cute and cuddly animals, or are we concerned about the death-spiders and nasty bugs as well?
