australian bush fires

australia is experiencing some wicked fires.

the death toll is at 170 and rising with estimates of over 1 million indigenous wildlife killed as well as an enormous loss of habitat. (pictures of the devastation)

if you don't donate directly to the red cross, consider this option:
