Providing Disaster Relief for Australian Bushfires

Australia is in the midst of an unprecedented fire season that has affected millions of acres, destroyed thousands of structures, and claimed dozens of human lives. The so unique Australian wildlife is affected even worse with a preliminary estimate suggesting that almost a billion wild animals are affected.
