Sam Mitchell owner of the Kangaroo Island Wildlife Park in the Parndana region carries a dead koala and kangaroo to a mass grave site on January 08, 2020 on Kangaroo Island, Australia. The Kangaroo Wildlife Park positioned on the edge of the fire zone has been treating and housing close to 30 koalas a day. Almost 100 army reservists have arrived in Kangaroo Island to assist with clean up operations following the catastrophic bushfire that killed two people and burned more than 155,000 hectares on Kangaroo Island on 4 January. At least 56 homes were also destroyed. Bushfires continue to burn on the island, with firefighters pushing to contain the blaze before forecast strong winds and rising temperatures return.
