Australia is still being consumed by the worst wildfires it’s seen in decades, and staggering numbers of dairy animals and dairy farms are among the casualties. The country’s fire season started in late July–bushfires are typical in northern Australia from April to September due to the region’s climate. This season the blaze was accelerated by individuals who deliberately started fires. Police in New South Wales, the area most affected, have arrested at least 24 people, and their search for arsonists continues. According to CNN, more than 2,000 homes have burned, farmlands have been destroyed, and key dairy regions have been hit. The fires are unlikely to end soon, which means the country and its inhabitants need our help.
