Australia Fire Resulted in Animals Death
Editorials News | Jan-08-2020
We all are aware of the forest fires that occurred of an ecologist that was at the University of Sydney which estimated that there are nearly half a billion of animals had been wiped out since Australia's devastating wildfires which started spreading in the month of September. Now, he says that this number has soared for over 800 million in New South Wales and also over to 1 billion nationally.
University of Sydney professor Chris Dickman has told in recent News that he thinks that there's nothing quite that can be compared with the devastation of that's going on over such a big area so quickly. He further added that it's a monstrous event that is in terms of geographical area and the number of individual animals got affected.
The figure also includes mammals that excluded bats, birds and reptiles. It also not incorporated and included frogs, insects or other invertebrates.
He further continued that he knows that Australian biodiversity has also been going down over the last several years and decades, and it's probably very fairly known fact that Australia's got the world's highest rate of the mammals that are near extinction. The events like this that may well hasten the process of extinction for a certain range of other species. Thus, it is a very sad time.
It has been found that nearly 20 million acres have been burned across the country, and among authorities that reported the fires could be burning for months.
