efoort to contribute to this and kept the quality eventually.

No news this time but a BIG APPEAL to everyone, whom the situation in
Australia isn't unmoved. Since November last year, the Australian theritory
has been fighting with the biggest fires since ages.
Quoting one of resources, "Hundreds of fires over weeks have
burnt over 4 million hectares of land in NSW alone. Many animals were
already struggling with a lack of water and food due to the drought.
With the fires destroying unprecedented amounts of habitat, food shortages
have increased and lack of suitable habitat will be a significant long-term
challenge for surviving wildlife.
It is impossible to know how many animals have perished and it will
be many months before the impact on wild populations can be better understood
but ecologists at Sydney University have estimated over 800 million
animals have been affected in Australia since September."
The situation is truly tragic, as the fires are still ongoing throughout
the land, and scientists have said that no less than 450 millions of
animals had died because of that fatal scenario. Many Australian citizens
have also suffered much, and they have been either evacuated or lost
In 2007 I've spent three great weeks, visiting Australia, and NSW especially,
living in the north suburbs of Sydney, meeting lots of great people
and tripping throughout the theritory and was mesmerizing of the beauty
landscapes and richness of its flora and fauna.
If anyone of you, dear readers, had decided to support Australians and
its unique nature, please follow these three links and donate these
institutions. This is something we can do to help rescuing this unremarkably
and lovely land.
