I speak from the heart, when I say, that here, at PepMelon we all love animals. Therefore, it was really important, to support an organization, which can help for those little cute creations, who really need it.
In 2019 Australia has the worst wildfires seen in decades. The fire season during the summer, with hot and dry weather making it easy for blazes to start and spread. But also humans can be blamed. 28 people have died and more than 3000 homes destroyed, more than 7.3 million hectares have been burned across Australia's six states.
Millions of animals likely dead. 480 millions animals have been affected, but the real number could be high as one billion according to ecologists from the University of Sidney. So many species, birds, mammals, insects and frogs. A third of koalas may have been killed in the fires, at the affected habitats.
The Humane Society International is helping for animals in laboratories, on farm, but also at crises or in wildlife. They were also in Australia, to help for those animals, who needed help from the flames, the heat, where neither food nor liquid was left for them.
Watch this video from the Organization about their work in Australia. We are very pleased to have been able to contribute to their work.
