After record-breaking temperatures and months of severe drought, intense bushfires have devastated Australia. The flames have blazed through more than 18 million hectares of land, destroyed 5,900 buildings, killed at least 29 people, 4 of which were firefighters, and took the lives of an estimated one billion animals. Even though Australia finally received some rain which helped to extinguish around 32 fires, 100 of them are still raging around the country.

A variety of organizations are working hard to help the natural habitat which has suffered enormous consequences following the bushfires. One of them is the Agile Project which recently went viral for showing how they take care of seven wallaby babies.

While the adorable joeys are not related to each other, they have all been rescued from fires at a similar time from the same area and were placed in the Agile Project’s care.

Once the babies arrived at the organization, they were split to be cared for between its employees. Initially, the joeys were traumatized and stressed, some of them had minor injuries.

The carers placed them all together in a bed made of a kiddie pool where they finally could relax.

After deciding to name the joeys, rescuers honored prominent figures. Two of them were named Andrew and Geoffrey after the noble firefighters Andrew O’Dwyer and Geoffrey Keaton who lost their lives fighting the devastating fires.

The other 5 wallabies were named after famous people: Chris Hemsworth, Ash Barty, Margot Robbie, Celeste Barber and Rebel Wilson, who donated to the fire fund and encouraged their fans to do the same.
