More from Kangaroo Island Wildlife Rescue:
For those of you who would like to contribute we are asking for funds to help with veterinary costs, koala milk and supplements, extra holding/rehabilitation enclosures, as well as setting up a building to hold supplies to treat these animals.
We are working around the clock with a highly experienced, qualified and dedicated team of volunteers including qualified vets, vet nurses and wildlife carers to rescue, rehabilitate and care for all of the animals coming in from the bushfires.
On admittance to us, all efforts are made to rehydrate, treat and assess the wildlife by our vet care team. Many are being treated for severe burns with most burns being to their hands, feet and rumps.
We will continue to provide the best care possible for our injured wildlife, we expect due to significant habitat loss we will be building exhibits to hold the treated koalas until we can arrange release back into the wild for many of them.
Kangaroo Island is well known for its thriving koala population however over 150,000 hectares has been lost due to recent events, this will effect our koala population dramatically. We need to pull together to save this Australian icon.

Why did the Koala cross the road?! ⠀
To visit the wonderful small businesses in Gippsland! The fires impacted communities in ways we can't imagine and although some of the fires have thankfully died down these communities still need our help. ⠀
You can help these communities in many different ways:⠀
1. Shop from local businesses online or in person⠀
2. Send various donations, every little helps from food and clothes to money visit - ⠀
3. Support these business in social media by liking, sharing, following their posts ⠀
4. If you are supporting a cause that is raising funds share it with others so they can help out too⠀
5. Plan a future trip to Gippsland to help the area recover with much needed tourist $$, it's such a beautiful part of Victoria that you don't want to miss! ⠀
6. Treat yourself! I know it sounds odd but why not! So many makers and artists are donating their work in return for a $ donation, so you can get a beautiful gift while making a much needed donation. ⠀ @mava_collective we have raised over $3000 so far for #mavafundraiser , go check it out and get a beautiful artwork for your donation. (Bonus most donations are tax deductible too! Win-win-win). For all the bad things we can say about social media, it has been a huge help with the fires, helping people stay in touch, keep updated and educated, raise awareness of what's needed, getting help to feed and rescue wildlife, and giving people all over the world a opportunity to be involved and support everyone's efforts to raise awareness and funds 🙏🌍❤️ I didn't want to post an upsetting image of the fires as I think we've all had them seared into our mind, so here's a koala just crossing the road, just look at that wiggly bum 🐨😍😂 #Repost@loveeastgippsland

Witnessing the bleached and dead corals on The Great Barrier Reef. Sad but it is the reality, in 2016 the GBR went through a mass bleaching where 29% of the corals bleached. The reason for bleaching is the rise of temperature in the ocean. This makes the Coral going through stress. When a Coral is stressed it is expelling the algae living inside its tissue. This algae is an important food source for the Coral and without it the Coral will starve to death. A dead Coral is looking black in colour. What you can see in the footage there are some dead among the bleached and living. However bleached Corals can be restored and come back to a healthy stage if the temperature gets back to its normal level. Scientists estimate that if we do not act now all coralreef will go extinct within 30 years, not only for The Great Barrier Reef, but all reefs on earth!
1 billion people relying on the reef as a food source, if 1 billion people can't get food, humans are going to face their first mass deat within our life time!
Bleached Corals are happening all around the world, where the most impacted areas such as Hawaii, Florida, several places in Indonesia, Red Sea and Indian Ocean are also effected.
I will recommend you to watch "Chasing Coral" on Netflix for further and more detailed information @chasingcoral
