    I’m Aussie and it’s so sad to see our national treasure dying so rapidly. 🥺😢 Thank you CNN

    • David Mc Why do you call me Gay? Then delete your comment?…Another Bill H that calls random people Gay!…Get a life loser! 😂🤣😂

    • @William H Are YOU? Looking for a date?

    • @YooToob CensorsMe Good questions.
      1. The fires are in a wide variety of natural areas not specifically managed forests.
      2. Australia is the aridest populated continent on the planet and bushfires are part of the landscape. Some years worse than others.
      Some start from dry lightning strikes – some from carelessness – some deliberately lit. The winds fuel and carry the fires over large areas. The fires are more dangerous as the country is in an unusual heatwave.
      3. Some areas have roads near towns – some are in national parks with no road access that has to just burn out. The topography again is very varied. National Parks are usually hilly and heavily wooded. Other areas are flattish. We had to evacuate for a few days in a flat area and are on stand by.
      4. Water is not abundant, however, they draw on all water sources including mains water, dams etc.
      I hope that helps your questions.

    This breaks my heart. I hope the Australians get a break and are able to contain these fires. I visited NSW a few years ago and its beautiful there with beautiful wildlife.

    • Margaret Riley…I know, the poor little pumpkins are getting roasted alive😟🐨!! I live in the southwest and it has poured rain 🌧 for 4 days in a row. It’s so cold 🥶 and damp for the desert 🌵 The overnight lows are in the upper 40’s I wish I could send the rain from here to NSW to help the good people and animals of Australia 🇦🇺 God bless all creatures great and small 🙋🏽‍♀️💕

    • @Pup Pup Man Seriously? You must have a single digit IQ. I live here are seeing the deaths as it is happening.

    “that’s the power of the koala worldwide” 🤷🏽‍♀️

  10. Save the koala I love them

  11. It’s broke my heart 😢

  12. Save as many as you can praying for you

  13. Save the koalas 2020

  14. Alone Australia Cant prevent Koala Extinction 😐 time for others to pitch in

    • They are native to Australia. If Australia cant keep them alive, they will die out. We have already lost the Tasmanian Devil, if we lose the koala, there needs to be a royal commission.

  15. Poor creatures 🐨😭😢 I wish the wildlife flourishes in the coming years 🙏🏼xx
