Almost as adorable a campaign as the fires are tragic, the folks are WIRE (Australia’s Wildlife Rescue group) has found a heart-tugging way to get people’s attention on the massive devastation going on down under.
WIRES CEO Leanne Taylor over saw the project that hung plush koala bears on poles all over the city of New York.
The gentle toys are to remind people that over a billion animals have died (30% of which are koala’s) in the fires that are still raging after 3 months. They also encourage people to go to the Koala’s of NY Gofundme page to donate and to follow them on Instagram.
I have personally been tortured by the thought of all the animals sacrificed in this monster fire and immediately found a way to financially help, since here in the States, I’m otherwise useless.
