In an effort to combat the devastation of the Australian bushfires, the Australian government has dropped thousands of kilograms of carrots and sweet potatoes from helicopters into national parks that are home to wildlife.
The New South Wales government has called this “Operation ‘Rock Wallaby’” and hopes that it will help the animals who have survived the fires but now have nothing to eat due to destroyed vegetation.
The Australian bushfires have killed around 20 people and more than 1 billion animals.
