The Australian bushfires made headline news across the globe.
The fires burned through approximately 18.6 million hectares of land (that’s more land than 108 countries!)
At least 34 people were killed.
An estimated one billion animals were killed
As a result, some endangered species are now on the brink of extinction.
Smoke travelled across the Pacific Ocean to parts of South America.
The effects of the bushfires were felt all over the globe.
In the face of this disaster,
We did what we do best.
We got together.
Individuals, corporations and governments from all across the globe came together to aid in this fight against mother nature.
And together, we were able to contain the fires.
In the end, the damage caused by the bushfires was catastrophic.
And the cause of the event is clear.
It is yet another sign of climate change.
If we don’t start doing something about climate change, these events will be the new norm.
