In 2019 bushfires raged on the east coast of Australia continuing into 2020 leaving ancient forests, woodlands, farmlands and built up areas devastated in their wake. The loss of animal habitat cannot be replaced or rebuilt in the way of human houses. Images of charred wildlife trying to escape drew attention to how few options there were once their natural habitat is gone.
