The wildfires in Australia are at epic proportions, seeming to crackle and billow across the entire continent. Since the fire season began in July, at least 24 people have died due to those blazes, while in New South Wales alone fires have decimated more than 1,300 houses, according to CNN.
The island nation is home to more than people, as animals from koalas to wallabies to horses and birds call the brush their abode. And they are taking a hit, with some estimates suggesting 480 million animals in New South Wales have been affected since the fires started there in September, according to Chris Dickman, an expert on Australian mammals and a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Science.
