Australian Bush fire has trapped thousands of animals in the blaze and has burned their habitat down. The wildlife stuck in the fire and probably has no place to move around and nothing to eat because the fire has burned it all down.
The government in New South Wales has started providing food for the animals by dropping thousands of kilograms of carrots and sweet potatoes.
‘Operation Rock Wallaby’ that has been launched by Wildlife Service and The NSW National Parks has the goal set of providing food to the vulnerable marsupial population that is at risk.
Several national parks have come together in the operations as the workers drop food from helicopters for rock-wallaby colonies. The list includes Yengo National Park, Capertree and Wolgan valleys, around Jenolan, and the Kangaroo Valley, Oxley Wild Rivers and Curracubundi national parks.
Matt Kean, Environment Minister of New South Wales said that they have managed to take out all the animals and most of them flee out on their own but the only problem remaining to deal with was the food scarcity the animals had been facing.
The wallabies already stressed out with the loss of habitat and the drought that they are facing. This has caused them survival challenges.
Mr. Kean said that they will be keeping an eye on the species to check if they are able to deal with the changes and are able to adjust to the new habitat they are in.
He also added that in order to take special care of keeping an eye on them, they will be installing cameras around the region to keep a focused check on their progress.
I hope this helps the species I finding food and keep them from starving.
