As the wildfires in Australia continue, many people are trying to raise money to help them out as best they can. Researchers at the University of Sydney estimate that 1 billion animals have died across the burned-out country already. However, this number doesn’t include insects or invertebrates so the loss is even bigger.

In New York City, a fundraising organization called “Koalas of NYC” is placing these adorable, cuddly animals in plushy form all over the city. The stuffed toys have a tag attached to them so that you could easily donate by scanning the QR code and help save all the stranded animals in Australia. They are placed around in all kinds of places – attached to light poles on Brooklyn Bridge, to fences in Central Park and they even visited a firefighter station. Their goal is simple, to minimize the damage the fire has caused by helping out the animals in need. “Right now, our staff, qualified experts and volunteers are working around the clock to ensure that as many native animals as possible receive the ongoing care, supplementary food, and recovery they need. This includes koalas, kangaroos, wallabies, wombats, possums, echidnas, birds, reptiles and more.” – They said on their GoFundMe campaign.

“There is an immediate need to locate, rescue and care for injured animals,” – one of their goals is to help animal species who lost their habitats and natural food sources survive. Their population is affected greatly because they lost their home and it will take a long time for them to recover and that’s why many animals could go extinct if the right actions are not taken.
