Frefighters in Australia have succeeded in saving a secret grove of prehistoric trees belonging to a species that dates back to the time of the dinosaurs. ➡️Swipe right to see images
The Wollemi pines once grew widely across Australia from more than 100 to 60 million years ago, The Washington Post reported. But now less than 200 remain in the wild, in a national park 125 miles northwest of Sydney. "It's something like the Opera House of the natural world," Richard Kingsford, director of the Center for Ecosystem Science at the University of New South Wales (NSW), told The Sydney Morning Herald. "Losing it would have added to the catastrophe we have seen elsewhere." Historic wildfires in Australia this spring and summer have killed at least 28 people and more than a billion animals. Heavy rainfall in the last 24 hours has brought some relief to the the hard-hit states of NSW and Victoria, CNN reported.
But during the worst of the crisis, the NSW government knew it had to protect the ancient trees growing in a ravine in Wollemi National Park, so the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) firefighters and the NSW Rural Fire Service worked together to carry out an "unprecedented environmental protection mission," NSW Environment Minister Matt Kean said in a statement Wednesday.

Another Kangaroo bag, listed in my Folksy shop, rabbits sing money for WIRES.org. I love turquoise as it makes me think of summer and the seaside! In fact, any shade of blue is my favourite and my best. Although I do love red too. And white and cream....what’s your favourite colour? Do you have a colour that you can’t stand?
Have a lovely Sunday y’all 🥰

👌Una muy interesante noticia, que destaca la importancia de la fauna fosorial. .
☝️Los animales fosoriales son aquellos que están adaptados a la vida subterránea y a la excavación. .
👉Ejemplo de estos animales , además de nuestros hermosos armadillos , son los wombats, tejones , topos entre otros. .

Photo of the Day : Today starts with the unexpected encounter of Yoko-chan. Then joined the event called Lunch Trip by strong recommendation of Kazue-san. It was fun time to hear the professional photographer Aihara-san whose base is Australia and to eat the delicious Australian cuisine especially the salad of Kale.

Melbourne Australia is a crazy crazy place. Bushfires in the North, red hot last week in Alps when I was there day 1, bloody cool mornings by day 4, now hail and horrendous rain Hopefully it helps fire fighters https://twitter.com/firewaters/status/1218776149657968640 …
Mate, what are you doing to help? @BetteMidler has been supportive in many ways including financially. She has helped raise awareness of what Australia is going through inclding the very significant animal losses we have suffered. Your comments are both unhelpful & insulting. Grr

Albanese is a very confused man! Like Shorten it depends where he is in Australia! I’m very sad to hear he pretty well blames his wife for the split! Always takes two Albanese! Would love to hear her side but I’m sure she would be gagged and paid off!
House of Chimney Cakes is committed to helping others in need of support & aid. We will be having our Aussie Special until the end of this month. 100% of the proceeds made from this special will be given to @wildlifewarriorsworldwide🧡🐨🌏
