Australia's fires have been burning across the country for a couple of weeks now, responsible for the loss of numerous lives and homes. Bigger than the recent Amazon fires and the California fires, the impact it's having on the environment is huge; wildlife and their habitats are being destroyed at an alarming rate, with slow-moving animals like the koala bear having a particularly difficult time escaping the fast-moving flames.

While resources are greatly needed, awareness can be just as helpful. Social media is already responsible for raising a significant amount of money to help first responders and animal rescuers continue their amazing efforts to bring relief to those in need. A big mahalo goes out to all those who have helped use Instagram and social media to promote good, and improve devastating situations like this one.
