Irwin Family’s Wildlife Hospital Rescues Animal Number 90,000

The Irwin family’s wildlife hospital recently treated animal number 90,000 as wildfires continue to ravage parts of Australia.

Thursday, the late Steve Irwin’s son, Robert, posted the photo of the hospital’s special patient on Twitter.

Many of the animals rescued recently by the Irwin family’s Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors hospital were injured by the fires spreading across the country, according to WFLA. . .

“Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors was established in 2002 by Steve and Terri Irwin as a way to include and involve other caring people in the protection of injured, threatened or endangered wildlife – from the individual animal to an entire species,” its website stated. . .

Sadly, the animal death toll from the fires has been estimated at nearly half a billion in one area alone. However, experts believe the burned forests will recover and that koalas, kangaroos, and other species affected by the wildfires will return in the future.
