At first, there was drought and heat, now Australia is suffering from severe fires. According to experts, this year’s fire had covered from 8 to 10 million hectares of land so far. Several dozens of people died, billions of unique plants and animals burned. Entire regions of the country are left without electricity, the smoke is covering half a continent.
Fires in Australia occur every year, but this year the scale of destruction is extreme.
“The number and magnitude of fires fluctuate from year to year, but the overall trend towards increasing fire risk persists,” said Susanne Winter, who runs the forest protection program at World Wild Fund (WWF).
Many charity funds have been organized to help put the fires out and save all living things on the continent. From huge corporations to regular people, everyone wants to tip in as much as they can, and the crypto community is in it, too.
