The recent fires in Australia resulted in the death of over one billion animals, with one-third of koalas killed. Scientists estimate there are 113 animal species in need of urgent help. The Australian government made a provisional list of the animals stating that they need “urgent management intervention” to survive. The list includes 13 bird, 19 mammal, 20 reptile, 17 frog, five invertebrate, 22 crayfish and 17 fish species. Koalas and giant burrowing frogs are among those species in need of emergency intervention.
