Sam the Koala

The recent bushfires in Australia have horrified me. The thought of someone deliberately lighting those fires is just astounding. Whole towns and villages have been burnt to the ground. It was heart-wrenching to see parents on television in a shell-shocked state, knowing that they'll never see their children again.

There is some good news and beacons for hope in the midst of this disaster. Sam the koala was rescued from a burnt area by a firefighter, who helped give the thirsty and burned koala some water.

The RSPCA Victoria are currently seeking donations to help animals injured by the Victoria bushfires. It is all too easy to focus solely on the human death toll in this horrific series of fires, but don't forget all the animals that have also been impacted.
