Incoming carrots!

We are all aware about the entire bushfire situation in Australia, and how more than a billion animals have lost their lives to it.

However, there's no time to cry over spilt milk, as the surviving animals need all the care and help they can get.

The New South Wales National Parks and Wildlife Service is already on it, and they're doing it in the coolest way possible.

Make it rain

They must be starving.
USA Today reported that the Department has been sending food to the hungry animals by dropping them from a helicopter.

Yes, department literally made it rain carrots and sweet potatoes for the creatures.

According to the report, they have already dropped thousands of pounds of vegetables from helicopters to feed the wallabies population, whose food sources were limited in the wake of the bushfires. 

After dropping off the provisions, they would then be delivered by land.

The men hard at work.
"1,000 kilograms of sweet potato and carrot have been sent to six different colonies in the Capertee and Wolgan valleys; 1,000 kilograms across five sites in Yengo National Park; almost 100 kilograms of food and water in the Kangaroo Valley, with similar drops having also taken place in Jenolan, Oxley Wild Rivers and Curracubundi national parks,” the department said in a statement quoted by the news portal.

New South Wales Minister for Energy and Environment Matt Kean told the news portal that the provision of supplementary food is one of the key strategies they're deploying to promote the survival and recovery of endangered animal species such as the wallabies.

While there's still no end to the devastating fire in sight, at least we can sleep a little bit easier knowing that the surviving animals are well taken care of.

Hats off to you guys!
