Plane Drops Thousands of Pounds of Vegetables for Hungry Animals

Due to the Australian brush fire crisis, a lot of wildlife have been left stranded and hungry, because the fires are burning all of the vegetation.

Thanks to the New South Wales government, aircraft in Australia are being used to drop thousands of pounds of carrots and sweet potato to the wildlife!

It’s called ‘Operation Rock Wallaby’ and it is intended to feed brush-tailed rock wallabies and help the state’s marsupials survive. They plan on tracking their progress

Just a week ago, the New South Wales National Parks and Wildlife Service started its mission of undertaking all of the food drops to several locations.

 Even though the animals have escaped and survived the fires, but there is no longer food in their natural habitat.

The charity WWF Australia is using donations to lease small planes that they fill with bags of grain and pellets to give out to wildlife.
