Since the start of 2020, we have been hearing about the tragic fires taking place in Australia. So far at least 28 people have died nationwide, in the state of New South Wales more than 3,000 homes have been destroyed or damaged. 

The fires have torn through bushland, national parks and smoked has even started covering urban areas. In total, more than 7.3 million hectares have been burned across Australia’s six states. About half a billion animals have also been affected due to these fires. 

So far the state and federal authorities have been working to combat the fire crisis for moths. Unfortunately, it does not seem that the end of this disaster is near. Australia has a long summer season and they are only half-way through it. January and February are the peak temperature seasons, so it could be many months before these fires letup.
