I am so heartbroken to see Australia burning – for soon long already.
I know the media in Europe did not really cover this issue and just started to report about the severe bushfires in Australia. But Australia is already burning for months….
Some of you might remember my Christmas post about the organizations I donated to – which were already in Australia. The reason why Australia is so important to me is that I used to study there. I lived in Sydney for a year and I was able to experience this beautiful continent. So yes, it breaks my heart to see that Australia is burning and Notre Dame got more attention last year that this continent.
I am in no position to talk about politics but I do believe that we all have to change in our perspective and priorities. It is not enough to say I want to change. WE HAVE TO CHANGE OUR HABITS!
We have to understand that if we don’t globally change how we treat this planet this is just the beginning of a nightmare. It will become worse and worse. This is more than a wake up call. It is our last call to understand that we did nature wrong.
So if you are safe and your family and friends are safe be grateful for that and donate (even if is just 5€).
I am not going to post any pictures, because they just make me so sad and I can’t look at them anymore. I just really really hope we are doing better now. We understand and that we will change.
And I am hoping that besides all the help there will be rain for Australia. Soon.
Here is a list of organizations (taken from CNN Australia) you can support with donations or if you are in Australia yourself, drop off some things that are needed:
Please consider donating to these smaller wildlife fundings first, since they are also doing amazing work but havent gotten much attention yet:
Save the Kangaroo Island Glossy Black Cockatoo
Kangaroo Island Wildlife Network
With these organisations you will get updates on their work via gofundme and Instagram, which is pretty cool if you ask me
Thank you for this informative and soooo helpful post! It’s a tragedy what is happening down under atm.
Yes it’s so so sad :( But I am so happy that people donate and spread the word. Thank you <3
Also if anyone wants to donate to wildlife in Victoria here is the link- http://wildlifevictoria.org.au Plus there is another organisation called the Rescue Collective (whose job it is to ensure that there is a food supply being maintained for all of the displaced wildlife-which is now a massive undertaking) – they have just set up a backup web site for donations Rescue Collective-Backup Wildlife Bushfire Link. This is going to take months to years to deal with all of this.
Yes, thank you for sharing :)
