According to Australian Koala Foundation’s Deborah Tabart, thousands of koalas have died so far in the blazes and there is great concern over the remaining koala population.
Over 31 koalas have been brought to the hospital from fire grounds and have been rehydrated, examined for burns, treated with cream and been bandaged, with the dressings being changed every three days.
