Because … hello… what could be more adorable than this??

(Sadly, all these joeys are orphans from the #AustralianBushfiresDisaster.)

In Victoria, one of the states most ravaged by #AustralianBushfiresDisaster, look at the cases reported to @wildlife_vic in December. Yes – that’s for ONE MONTH!

#BushfireCrisis #AustraliaOnFire

Approx. 2/3 of gorgeous #KangarooIsland in #SouthAustralia has been devastated after two weeks of #bushfires. Blustery weather is creating difficult conditions. w. 22 firefighters injured to date. Look at this πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡!
The before and after photos emerging from #kangarooislandfire are horrifying. Let's start big picture with @NASA's aerial shots of Australia's third biggest island on Dec 16 (left) and then Jan 7 (right).
@NASA @ScheuerJo @SameeraSavarala @martinfredras @AlanaCraigen @luckytran @BecSusanGill @GretaThunberg @MikeHudema @EricHolthaus @ap4ca This is an ecological tragedy for #Australia. #KangarooIsland is renowned for its nature reserves and vast numbers of wildlife including sea lions, koalas and many endangered bird species. @nzherald posted the photo below from #FlindersChaseNationalPark.

Just when I thought I couldn't get more depressed about #AustralianBushfiresDisaster, I read govt is ordering orphaned 🦘&🐨 joeys to be euthanised. Hallelujah for schools and teens determined to save our gorgeous wildlife: bit.ly/2FMJU8t πŸ’š

#Mallacoota THREAD

These arresting images are from residents of the small town of #Mallacoota at 10.30AM!!!! as they huddled on a wharf and watched flames come towards them from multiple fronts.

@GretaThunberg @AlexandriaV2005 @ClimateKristin @SameeraSavarala @EricHolthaus @MikeHudema @MichaelEMann @ap4ca @350Australia @GeraldKutney @KHayhoe #Mallacoota is a small town of about 4000 people in the state of #Victoria. There's one road in/out of town but no-one could use it to evacuate. Everyone was ordered to the town wharf to wait out the #bushfire, sitting ready in life jackets.

THREAD: #Australia has a #ClimateEmergency

🚨🚨🚨πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯🚨🚨🚨

The intensity of the 2019 #bushfires, ablaze for months, can be directly attributed to #ClimateChange. Approx. 2 million ha burned, toxic smoke, no end in sight.

These photos were taken recently at 2am near #Lithgow. ImageImage
