Area women create pouches for animals affected by Australian wildfires
Approximately 20 residents gathered in Fifty Lakes on January 12 to make 100 pouches for animals affected the recent Australian wildfires.
The deadly wildfires in Australia started in September and scorched millions of acres of land. Many Australians lost their homes and lives in these bushfires. Animals were also affected, with millions of them dying in the fire. These include koalas, kangaroos, wombats, birds, reptiles, and other animals that call Australia home.
In addition, animals were displaced from their homes and baby animals hwere separated from their mothers. The pouches provide these animals with a safe place to recover.
The group had specific guidelines on how to make the pouches that included sizes, and types of materials.
