Nearly Half A Billion Animals Died In The Australia Fires

-

- Advertisment -
Nearly half a billion animals have been impacted by the fires in NSW alone, with millions potentially dead, according to ecologists at the University of Sydney.
 
That figure includes birds, reptiles, and mammals, except bats. It also excludes insects and frogs — meaning the true number is likely much higher.
 
The total number of animals affected nationwide could be as high as a billion, according to Christopher Dickman, the University of Sydney ecologist who led the report.
 
Fires are nothing new in Australia, but they have been growing more intense and becoming more destructive in recent years, a problem that has been exacerbated by climate change.
 
And animals have been on the front lines — Australia has the highest rate of species loss of any area in the world, and researchers fear that rate could increase as the fire disaster continues.
 

Australia is home to a list of different and unique varieties of animals, birds, reptiles and plants, Among Australia’s best known wild animals are the kangaroo, koala, echidna, dingo, platypus and wallaby.
 
Famous animals found in Australia also include marine animals such as cone snail, sea snake, blue-ringed octopus and land animals such as Gang-gang cockatoo, Emu, eastern brown snake, tiger snake, wolf spider, wedge-tailed eagle, banjo frog and Blue-tongued skink, here is the list of unique wild animals of Australia.
