The Australian bushfires devastated the country and its ecosystem, leaving around half-a-billion animals dead. Meanwhile, around 14 million acres (21,875 square miles) of land is scorched, and hundreds of thousands of Australians have been displaced. It’s a disaster of end-of-the-world proportions.
