See the scary image: Australia before and after

at Least 24 people and 480 million animals have been killed, and more than 6.3 million hectares of country are burnt in the massive forest fires that continue to ravage the south-east of Australia.

the Fires have created problems since september last year, where extremely high temperatures have worsened conditions.

Two pictures taken the same place in the Flinders Chase National Park on Kangaroo Island in Australia now shows clearly how much the forest fires have destroyed.
