What’s Happening in Australia and Who Is Saving Humans and Animals from Bushfires Right Now

Severe bushfires are still brewing on the southeast coast of Australia for the second month in a row: forests are burning, people are losing their homes, and animals are dying. The residents of the country and the rest of the world are helping them as much as they can: they’re donating money, food, and clothes, and giving shelter to exhausted firefighters and volunteers.

ViralSection wants to tell you about the events taking place in Australia and about the heroes protecting their country. The names of some became known on the internet, others have stayed unknown, but they all continue fighting fires in different ways right now.

1. Nearly 120°F heat and drought in December led to fires that are visible even from space — 8 million hectares of land have been burned, and the flames reach 230 feet in height.

And although the fires cannot be stopped yet due to the heat, drought, and strong winds, we believe that the “green continent” will heal its wounds and admire the heroes who keep fighting with the fires every day. Hugging you, Australia! We are with you! We wish you rain and good news!
