800 million animals, 26 million acres. Australia’s tragedy in numbers.
More than 26 million acres of Australia have burned since the wildfire season began. That’s more than 10 times the size of the 2018 California fires. The human cost has been severe, with at least 27 lives lost and some 2000 houses destroyed.
But experts say the level of ecological destruction underway is unprecedented. Grasslands and eucalyptus forests have burned, which is not uncommon,but so have some alpine areas and rainforests. And such huge tracts of habitat disappearing have many concerned for the rich wildlife in Australia,which has a high portion of animals found nowhere else in the world and already has the highest rate of extinction for any region.The scope of any disaster can be difficult to grasp from afar. But the numbers coming out of Australia are particularly jarring.The World Wide Fund for Nature estimates that up to 1.25 billion animals have been lost overall on the continent
