Experts worry Australia n species at risk as wildlife workers continue rescue operations

As the death toll soars among Australia n animals impacted by the nation’s sweeping bushfires, those who care for koalas and other threatened wildlife are kicking their rescue efforts into overdrive.

In a tweet last week, the organization detailed one particularly affecting encounter for staff: the moment when HSI came across an injured koala crouched only feet away from the body of a deceased one. “The wildlife death toll is so high that those who survive are living among the dead,” the tweet reads. The wildfires have eaten up more than 100 thousand square kilometres of brushland, rainforests and national parks. Australia already has the world’s highest rate of extinction and experts are concerned that these fires are speeding up the pace of extinction for many species unique to the region. Even if animals survive the flames themselves, their habitats and food sources are being erased, making it harder for survivors to reboundexperts say. Koalas, one of the nation’s most iconic animals, had lost around 30 per cent of their habitat in New South Wales by the end of 2019. Canadian ecologist Clare Anstead says that recovery of species and the environment as a whole could take decades. “It’s hard to say what the long term consequences are going to be, from an ecological standpoint,” she added. “You have so many animals that have been affected.” Christopher Dickman, a professor with the University of Sydney, said in a news release that environmental scientists and ecologists in Australia feel that they’ve been “frozen out of the debate” regarding the country’s environmental policy. “I think it's now time to bring the scientists back into the tent to look at what is likely to be happening over the next few decades and to think about how we can maintain both the human community in good health and as much biodiversity as can be retained under this evolving situation.” Although the work is piling on for rehabilitation workers, there is still a positive side. In a video posted to HIS Australia’s Twitter Saturday, Erica Martin, CEO of HSI Australia, cradles a tiny baby koala -- known as a joey -- and reports that the wounded are already “bouncing back.” Moore pointed out that the support across the globe and from organizations on the ground has led to the rescue of countless animals. “It's amazing,” she said. “I'm absolutely gobsmacked on how the population, even the whole world, has just come all together. I've actually got goosebumps even thinking about it.” Related Stories Read more: CTV News

Experts fact-check health claims in Netflix’s ‘The Goop Lab’The six-part series worries some experts who say claims made by Goop employees and guests invited on the show appear to be misleading or even false. I have to admit, I was disappointed with Paltrow's cooter candle. Reminds me of the time my friend bought a 'penis enlarger' on Ebay. When it arrived, he opened the box and pulled out a magnifying glass with instructions 'don't use in sun'. Her vagina scented candle cured my AIDS. Fact. Got money to throw away? Send it to Goop.
