Beginning earlier in 2019 and continuing into 2020, Australia has suffered from some of the worst bushfires in recorded history.
Over 14.7 million acres have been burned across six of Australia's states, claiming the lives of an estimated 480 million animals and 25 people.
Australian PM and Liberal Party leader Scott Morrison has faced criticism for his government's response to the crisis, especially from climate change activists who link the scope of the fires to Australia's greenhouse gas emissions.
