For those interested in donating to the Australian Bushfire Appeal,
Myriad options can be found here.
I chose the wildlife fund. I know people will need money, food and blankets, and I will give my yoga blankets to the blanket appeal. But people are the first port of call for most donations. Meanwhile, just thinking about the numbers of charred and injured animals in the bush makes me physically sick. Have you ever seen a wombat try to run? Or a koala? No chance, man.
This fire is likely to have permanently devastated the native wildlife population in that region. It may never recover, especially with the drought.
Okay. I'll shut up now.
I'll leave you with a picture from my friend Kylie's house. The fire was about 3km distant and, lucky for her, stayed that way.
