The recent bushfires that have ravaged Australia have been the worst ever seen in Australian history, and it is far from over.
At least 30 people have been confirmed dead and an extra ten firefighters have been reported killed while fighting the fires, with many more missing. 12.35 million acres have been scorched, equivalent to the size of the US states of Vermont and New Hampshire combined. The smoke from the ferocious infernos is visible from space, and it has spread so far that it is causing haze in New Zealand, which is more than 4,000 kilometers away.
The Australian wildlife has also severely suffered. According to analysis by Professor Chris Dickman, from the University of Sydney, an estimated 480 million animals could perish as a result of the bushfires. The fires have killed many of these animals however; many more animals will perish due to destruction of food and shelter sources.
The Australian community and communities internationally have been rallying together to offer support to those affected and displaced due to the fires.
