October Bushfires

“The predictions on climate change are for worse bushfires with greater intensity as we go down this century. That means that if we are looking to minimising these tragedies in the future we very much have to turn around this catastrophic potential of climate change and take action now in our own time.” Bob Brown

 I am finding the current bushfires burning around NSW to be so upsetting. The loss that people and animals in the affected areas have suffered is heartbreaking and I can’t stop thinking about some of the personal stories I have read about and seen on the news. I am so worried that this is a sign of what is going to be “normal” in our future.

If you are feeling as helpless as I do right now, there are some good ways to help out. The NARGA Disaster Response Team is a fantastic facebook page to “like”. It has so many suggestions on ways to help out – from volunteering to drop items to places in need, how to prepare for a bushfire, ways to donate money and how to sign up to offer your services as an animal minder for people needing temporary homes for their animals.

Another wonderful organisation is WIRES who are obviously inundated at the moment and would benefit greatly from donations.

Woolworths are generously matching any public donations for the next 2 weeks to the Salvation Army too for the bushfire appeal. This can be done at the check out.

 

Please, weather gods, bring some rain.
