Australia is Dropping Vegetables From Choppers to Feed Wildlife Starved by Fires

The Mind Unleashed – by Elias Marat

As Australia’s bushfire crisis continues to impact wildlife, aircraft have been deployed to feed thousands of starving wild animals who have been stranded by the blazes.

The government of the hard-hit state of New South Wales (NSW) has begun a campaign of airdrops across scorched regions, delivering thousands of pounds of root veggies —like carrots and sweet potatoes —from choppers flying above in a bid to sate the appetites of hungry colonies of brush-trailed rock wallabies, reports Daily Mail

Dubbed “Operation Rock Wallaby,” the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service’s campaign is meant to help save the threatened marsupials from the growing danger of mass starvation.

Over the past week, the agency has conducted the food drops for rock wallaby colonies in various regions across the state. Nearly 5,000 pounds (2,200 kg) of fresh vegetables have already been delivered to the hungry native creatures.

NSW Environment Minister Matt Kean said that although the wallabies have escaped the threat of the monstrous fires, their food sources remain scarce—or simply nonexistent. The official explained:

“The wallabies typically survive the fire itself, but are then left stranded with limited natural food as the fire takes out the vegetation around their rocky habitat.

The wallabies were already under stress from the ongoing drought, making survival challenging for the wallabies without assistance.”

Kean added that they plan to follow up on how the animals progress as they continue recovery efforts following the raging bushfires. He said:

“When we can, we are also setting up cameras to monitor the uptake of the food and the number and variety of animals there.” 

Since the fire crisis broke out in September, at least 28 people have been killed and countless others forced to evacuate—often repeatedly—as the historic wave of bushfires ripped through 25.5 million acres (10.3 million hectares) of land, an area equal to the size of South Korea.

Ecologists at the University of Sydney estimate that over 1 billion animals have been killed in the bushfires. Because the fires have extended to wetlands, dry eucalyptus forests, and even rainforests, many animals have been unable to find refuge in neighboring regions.

Even prior to the fires, rock wallabies had been deemed an at-risk species due to the destruction of their habitats.

Experts have warned that the massive loss of life due to the fires threatens to cross a tipping-point for entire species of animals and plants on an island continent where 87 percent of wildlife is endemic to the country, meaning it can only be found on Australia.

Conservationist group the World Wildlife Fund Australia estimates that 1.25 billion animals have died due to the bushfire crisis. In a statement Tuesday, WWF-Australia CEO Dermot O’Gorman said:

“This heart-breaking loss includes thousands of precious koalas on the mid-north coast of NSW, along with other iconic species such as kangaroos, wallabies, gliders, potoroos, cockatoos and honeyeaters.

Many forests will take decades to recover and some species may have tipped over the brink of extinction. Until the fires subside, the full extent of damage will remain unknown.”

  1. Reality, they’re going to cull thousands of Kangaroos to slow global warming and to reduce the water draw, so they can give it to foriegn commies like China.So the environmental faggots with their brown radical glasses are happy, because of all the flatulence camels produce, which contributes to global warming.
    Not to mention the millions of animals roasted alive because of this obvious arson.
    Ever watch a chink roast a live dog? Times that by millions.
    You want to save the animals? Drop this commie, and the rest of the murderous Aussie politicians and “stakeholders” from them choppers. Scarface scene, where’s Sousa when you need him…..

    1. And add “Extinction Rebellion” useful idiots to the drop from choppers, please! Bwahahahahahah!

      And do I need to reverberate again that passage from Revelation 11:18? “God will destroy those that destroy the Earth” including His creation…kangaroos, wallabys, platypuses,etc. And not just innocent wildlife (I love it out here where I live, why? Wildlife!)…how is this impacting Aborginee tribal lands?
