Airplanes Drop Tons Of Vegetables Feeding Survived Animals Starving From The Bushfires

While bushfires keep menacing the country, Australians have found an innovative way to aid the survivors in terms of food. In particular, officials are using helicopters to drop tons of vegetables to supply starving animals that made it through the fire.

The program, which is being spearheaded by New South Wales National Parks, tries to feed the remnant marsupial population. Over 2,200 kg of fresh veggies have been dumped thus far.

In an interview, Matt Kean, the New South Wales Environment Minister, claimed that the ravage of bushfires took away not only the lives of billions of critters but also their food source.

Those who fled from the flame are now facing the new threat of starvation. Thus, the officials create this Operation Rock Wallaby mission.

According to many locals, while wallabies are the most affected creatures, koalas are proceeding to the endangered list.

Meanwhile, the part of the rescue that is being carried out by people is bringing a lot of help. Locals welcome wild animals into their homes.

They provide food and improvised shelter for the habitat, while others deal with medical issues.

Though the ordeal has been put off to a large degree, the consequences are so dishearting.

This veggie operation just does a little part of saving and still seek more contribution from the community.
