Very sad. I will donate tomorrow, when I am in the office.
I am so sorry that is happening to your Country and family Matt. You all are in my prayers.These fires are huge. Totaling over several million acres!
We live over 2 hours drive away from the main fire in Victoria and we have had thick smoke for the last few days. People finding it harder to breathe and getting sore eyes.

It seems as though some of our states are finally seeing the wisdom of fire management. The forest service here in Arkansas has been doing prescribed burns for longer than I have lived here.Indigenous land management included using fire to regenerate flora. ... “Fire can be used for one of three outcomes.

I did recall reading an article in Beeculture that discussed how the previous years droughts and this years spring drought had affected the bees. Even before the fires, they had been doing poorly as nectar was scarce. So, the combined effect of droughts and now fires are a tremendous setback. I also didn't realize how much almond pollination there was in Australia so when you look at how quickly one thing affects another the result in devastating. I just can't imagine how bad it is even watching the news.
