It is pertinent to mention here that firefighters in Australia have been working tirelessly for the past several months to battle the bushfires ravaging the country.
The fires in Australia began in September last year which destroyed homes, about 12.35 million acres of land have burned and at least 20 people have been killed ,nearly half a billion animals have been wiped out.
Many parts of Australia have been in drought conditions, some for years, which have made it easier for the fires to spread and grow.
Ecologists at the University of Sydney estimated that nearly half a billion animals have been wiped out since the fires began several months ago and nearly 8,000 koalas about one-third of the population in their primary habitat are believed to have died since the fires began.
Meteorologists say a climate system in the Indian Ocean, known as the dipole, is the main driver behind the extreme heat in Australia.
Australian Prime Minister Morrison was badly panned for his management of the bushfires. He is facing persistent accusations of being absent, as he took a holiday to Hawaii, and underplaying the role of climate change.
