How is New South Wales dropping food from helicopters to save its unique wildlife?

 

Australia is going through a wildfire crisis right now. And some of the most affected are its unique wildlife.  Over 1 billion animals have died since the onset of the fires. Given that many of these species are endangered and serve as a critical component of Australia’s tourism industry, this is truly a National Treasure being lost. But luckily for everyone, New South Wales’ government is taking a bit of proactive action in this.  They have recently started air-dropping upwards of 4,000 lbs of food such as carrots and sweet potatoes to keep these animals alive. Not only is this a terrific example of human-influenced ecological resilience, but this is also How New South Wales Is Air-Dropping Food to Save Its Wildlife.
