The current Australian bushfires have claimed the lives of a third of the New South Wales koala population (vice.com). Let that sink in for a moment.
10 million hectares of land were destroyed by the fire.breitling superocean replica There were a few dozen people who died (including those fighting it), thousands of evacuated residents, and many thousands more homes that were damaged. It's the wildlife that has been most severely affected in the regions collectively.
Bloomberg reports that a study by Chris Dickman, University of Sydney, has shown that more than 800 million animals were killed in New South Wales, while only one billion died nationwide.
The overwhelming outpourings of support that have been given to the cause on a global scale, despite the fact that the numbers are so devastating, is what does the most good for the heart.
Time+Tide, our Australian friends, has led the charge on #WatchFam. The Time+Tide and Watchmakers Australia have teamed up to create the Watch & Act! World Watch Auction to help with the Australian bushfires.Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Replica This auction brought together watch experts from around the world, allowing them to sell timepieces.
Andrew McUtchen is the founder of Time+Tide. He writes that "100% of the proceeds from the auction are distributed across five charities: Two rural fire service groups - The Country Fire Authority of Victoria and Rural Fire Service of New South Wales; 2 wildlife rescue groups, Wildlife Victoria and Wildlife Fund; 1 fund, the Gippsland Emergency Relief Fund. This fund was specifically created for the South-East region of Victoria which has been especially hard-hit."
