Hi DaffNeters:
Here in the US, we’ve seen many horrendous photos of the Australian fires and regret the loss of life. Thought you might appreciate a positive photo and story from the area:

One response to “Australian fires and wildlife”

  1. Brenda Lyon says:

    G’day Linda, Thank you for the lovely story. The loss has been tremendous but the Aussie spirit is alive and well. The offer of help from around the world has been great. The temperature has remained low but will increase in the next few days and the high winds will bring further problems today. There are over 3,000 people homeless. Today the death toll has reached 181. The Red Cross appeal has raised $31 million. Regards Brenda from down under
