It is estimated that 480 million mammals, reptiles and birds have been killed by these fires. It is estimated that there was an average 17.5 mammals, 20.7 birds and 129.5 reptiles per hectare (as reported by BBC News). The figure is only expected to rise as the bushfires continue to ravage Australia. Of course, many of these animals may have been able to flee the area. A lot of the smaller creatures were left to suffer, as they would not have been able to outrun the flames. Kangaroos were able to hop away, but animals such as the Koala could only move so far. A lot of the donation links on the donation page can help assist local wildlife organisations look after injured animals.
