id="article-body" class="row" section="article-body"> Australia's animal population is unquestionably special. Many of its best-known species, such as kangaroos and koalas, are native to the country, and many creatures there can't be found in any other nations outside zoos.

In the massive bushfires sweeping the country, Australia's wildlife is helpless and populations are being devastated. Some of the most heartbreaking images and videos coming out of the crisis involve Australia's animals -- koalas shielding their babies from smoke, kangaroos being comforted, Patsy the Wonder Dog saving a herd of sheep, piles of burn cream and bandages stacked up, ready to treat injured wildlife.


This mama koala, burned from fires raging across Australia, shields her baby from the smoke on a fallen tree on the Gold Coast. Doing whatever we can to survive and protect our children is not only a human trait.

We need to do better for them.
