More than 12 million acres have burned, dozens of lives have been lost, thousands more people have been evacuated and at least 2,000 homes have been destroyed in bushfires that are devastating parts of Australia.
In addition to the human toll, it’s estimated that millions of animals have also perished. The family of the late Steve Irwin said they were rescuing or treating 90,000 animals.

Singer Pink also tweeted out a list of local fire services she said she was donating to.
I am totally devastated watching what is happening in Australia right now with the horrific bushfires. I am pledging a donation of $500,000 directly to the local fire services that are battling so hard on the frontlines. My heart goes out to our friends and family in Oz ❤️ pic.twitter.com/kyjDbhoXpp
