Dogs Rescuing Injured Koalas In Australia Fires

 Good News Notes:

“Koalas have been hit particularly hard by  Australia’s raging bushfires. One Australian has turned to a familiar friend to help the animals – dogs.

CBS News followed three special canines, Tommy, Emma and Becky, and their trainer Steve Austin, as they searched scorched land for injured but still living koalas.  

It is estimated that a third of New South Wales’ koala population has died, while numbers are higher in other states. With an approximate population of 100,000 to 200,000 in the wild before the fires, koalas were already on the verge of extinction. The World Wildlife Fund now says that more than 30,000 may have perished, although the final toll won’t be known for months.”
