Billions of animals, including koalas have lost their lives in the Australian bushfires but, there are still thousands of endangered animals that remain stranded, amid the bushfire crisis.
So, in an effort to feed the stranded animals the staff of the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service decided to airdrop food as part of "Operation Rock Wallaby."
Thousands of kilograms of carrots and sweet potato are being delivered to endangered Brush-tailed Rock-wallabies in fire affected areas as the NSW Government steps in to help. #9News pic.twitter.com/Vw3SnMUejL— Nine News Sydney (@9NewsSyd) January 12, 2020

As of now, sweet potatoes and carrots have been dropped over Capertee and Wolgan valleys, Yengo National Park, Kangaroo Valley, Jenolan, Oxley Wild Rivers and Curracubundi national parks.
After seeing the viral video, even the internet is praising the efforts of the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service for providing the animals with food.
The greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated.— NoOne (@shibasis5) January 12, 2020
