What a sweet story: this brave dog saved over 100 koalas from wildfires in Australia
A dog saved over 100 calories during the black summer fires in Australia.
We think it’s fair to say that most of us have heard of the bushfires in Australia that took place from September 2019 to March 2020 and greatly affected the fauna and flora of the country. The fires were the worst in New South Wales.
The drought and fires that took place last year are the most pressing symptoms of the climate crisis in Australia. Disasters such as fires and floods have deprived farmers of their livelihoods and caused millions of dollars in damage.
Unfortunately, due to these intense fires, many animals have also been severely injured or killed in Australia.
Koalas living in the wild have been hardest hit, as more than 60,000 of them have been affected by this tragedy. However, many of them were saved thanks to volunteers, firefighters and a particular dog.
Today we would like to introduce Bear, the dog that rescued over 100 koalas during the black summer fires in Australia.
Meet Bear, the dog that saved over 100 koalas from the bushfires in Australia.
He is the only dog in Australia trained and able to find koalas by sniffing their fur and feces.
