This Heroic Dog Saved Over 100 Koalas During The Australian Bushfires

We believe it’s fair to say that most of us have heard about the Australian bush fires that happened from September 2019 to March 2020 and heavily impacted the wildlife and flora of the country. The fires were the worst around the state of New South Wales.

The drought and the fires that happened last year are the most urgent symptoms of Australia’s climate crisis. Disasters like the fires and floods have devastated the livelihoods of farmers and wrought millions of dollars worth of damage.

Unfortunately, due to these intense fires, a lot of animals in Australia were also either heavily injured or died. Koalas living in the wild have been affected the most as over 60,000 of them suffered during this tragedy.

However, a lot of them were also saved thanks to kind people working as volunteers, firefighters, and one dog in particular.
