Australia’s ‘Black Summer’ Bushfire killed or harmed more than 60,000 colons – WWF

Sydney: Last summer, more than 60,000 koalas were killed, injured or displaced in Australian bushes, with the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) estimating who is deeply troubled for the species already in trouble. The number was called.
Last summer’s bushes, dubbed Australia’s “Black Summer” by Prime Minister Scott Morrison, also killed 33 people and spread over 24 million hectares (59 million acres) in the country.
According to the WWF study, about 3 billion native animals may have got in the way of bushes.
Koala habitats were in rapid decline, before the fires caused by land clearing for agriculture, urban development, mining, and forestry.
A 2016 report by a panel of koala experts put the koala population in Australia at 329,000, but has since been shrubs annually, reducing its numbers.
WWF-Australia chief executive Dermot O’Gorman said in the report, “This (figure of 60,000) is a disastrous number for a species that was already headed to extinction in eastern Australia. We can call coals on our watch Can’t afford to lose. ”
The WWF said that Kangaroo Island in South Australia was the worst-hit area for koalas, with about 40,000 koals on fire. Around 11,000 in Victoria and 8,000 in New South Wales (NSW) were also affected.
An NSW parliamentary inquiry in June concluded after a year-long inquiry that cuckoos in the state could become extinct by 2050 unless the government intervened immediately to protect them and their habitat.
The WWF aims to double the number of coals in Eastern Australia by 2050. The plan includes testing the seeds of Eucalyptus trees for drones, which provide both food and shelter for koalas, and establish a fund to encourage landowners to make koalas safe. heaven.
