The devastating fires in Australia continue to burn, and much of the attention has been on the terrible impact it’s had on the country’s animals. Millions have died in the fires, including native beasts – and there are fears some will never recover and may even become extinct, like the Kangaroo Island dunnart, a small mouse-sized mammal. Volunteers from New Zealand have flown over to help with the recovery, including Animal Evac New Zealand, which specialises in animal evacuation in disaster situations. SAFE – the animal rights charity, helped them get there. The trust was founded by Steve Glassey former chief executive of Wellington SPCA.
