This is a repost with some info about how to help Australia thank you @coconut_moe for sharing Posted @withrepost • @shopshoal Australia is currently facing incredibly devastating bushfires, and while these fires happen every year, 2019/2020 has been EXCEPTIONALLY hot and dry, making conditions for bushfires even more deadly than usual. In addition to human and urban loss, millions of animals and plants (many of which are found nowhere else in the world) have been destroyed in the fire. 🌿 To help put it into perspective, the Amazon wildfires ravaged 2.2 million acres of land. In Australia, 12 million acres have been burned to date. That is approximately the entire landmass of Wales, or Belgium, or most of Ireland. All burned. 🌿 Want to help? 💪You can spread the word; the more awareness there is, the more impact it can make for officials to do more. 💪You can donate, even just a small amount, to places like the NSW Rural Fire Service, The RSPCA Bushfire Appeal, and The Rescue Collective. If you want to donate goods instead of money, go to Givit Australia. 💪 You can purchase from shops that are donating profits from sales of items; check out @owlandbearstudio for more information on a fundraising sale they are running with 14 other IG accounts. 🌿 Image description: A digital illustration of a koala standing in the middle of an inflamed land of red, yellow and blue skies, fire embers surrounding it. #shopshoal #procreateapp #ipadpro #art #australia #bushfire #artist #illo #artoninstagram #awareness #nature #conservation #wildlife #koala #illustratorsoninstagram #illustration #appeal #help #environment #wildlifeart #wildfire #artistsofinstagram
