An image of a grieving koala burying its head in its fur, while sitting close to its dead friend is breaking hearts around the world. The image was taken on Kangaroo Island, where 37,000 koalas have been killed. So heartbreaking. 💔😓. 📷: Peter Parks/AFP

An animal rescuer is seen rushing over to comfort the injured koala and carry it to safety. 📷: Peter Parks/AFP pic.twitter.com/yunGKCKRxm
This is heartbreaking
A koala, only steps away from a deceased koala

The wildlife death toll is so high that those who survive are living among the dead

The live koala was taken into care by @hsiaustralia who've been doing an amazing job rescuing Koalas affected by #Wildfires
Zdjęcie pogrążonej w żałobie koali chowającej głowę w futrze, siedzącej blisko martwego przyjaciela💔

I don’t know how many more of these heart breaking images involving animals I can see.
In reply to @newscomauHQ
Your empathy is pretentious. The Murdoch family more than any other, through decades of lying about the risk of Climate Change, are responsible for ensuring this happened. News Corp, like a tobacco marketer running headlines about the toll of lung cancer in order to sell papers
The Fires are still a threat to Australian wildlife. You can donate here:
Rain came, helped a bit, but we’re still burning. And our koala population is still dying. 37k dead in one area alone.

We can’t help the dead, but we can help protect and save what is left. Please donate to @WIRES_NSW

Shame on the Coal Lobby, Mineral Council of Australia (and State Mineral Councils), NewsCorp, Rupert Murdoch and the Federal L/NP government. This carnage is on you lot. WE will never forget nor forgive. #Auspol #adani #AustraliaBurns

Interesting that it’s News Limited sharing this given them in conjunction with the LNP and their voters and fossil fuel corporations are the reason why this has happened. Should have listened to us 30 years ago.

Heartbreaking. Heart wrenching. Appalling that human greed and ignorance has caused so much death and destruction. We have to quit denying and take action. NOW. #ClimateCrisis #ClimateActionNow #ClimateAction #ClimateChangeIsReal #koalasnotcoal
In reply to @newscomauHQ
we only have 80,000 koalas in Australia - so 1/2 the population killed for coal and climate change deniers.
My heart hurts so much for the animals
Oh. 😢😢😢😢😢
I’m actually done with this planet ☹️
This is so awful. 😭💔
Omg my heart has totally broken in 100s of pieces! 😥😥

This is what despair looks like, it's hard to look at.❤️
not the koalas man 😔, ong i hate this world
In reply to @newscomauHQ
Can we stop anthropomorphising animals please? It was probably picking a flea off its fur or looking for a leaf it dropped.
In reply to @newscomauHQ
Ask Morrison why he allowed this to happen
In reply to @newscomauHQ
Hope it stops the destruction of koala habitats in Qld and NSW ...where the priority is digging up coal #KoalaKiller
#kangarooislandfires Our beautiful animals have been dealt the ultimate blow..but this guy was rescued! #AustralianBushfiresDisaster

Don't think koalas have friends.
My heart isn’t breaking. It’s broken. All the animal/fire posts have broken me. I see an image like this and I just tear up. I’m not even kidding.
😟 hits hard.
I’m broken. I can’t do any more koala dying or burnt pics. Muting is now on. Fucks me up.
This is it. I’m done now. I can’t go on. 😭😭

Koalas aren't they only animals effected.
In reply to @newscomauHQ
Pushing human emotions onto animals for a cheap bit of tragedy porn. Do Koalas even grieve? Do they have friends? They're solitary animals.

Poor little things

The continued anthropomorphism of Australian animals to help us deal with the bushfire tragedy is quite intriguing ... and a little bizarre. Why are we doing it?
This is awful. Mankind truly ruins everything 😭
If I have to see this, so do all of you
How much ice cream do I have to eat to make this less excruciating?
😢 ☹️
The human race must get its shit together! The planet is a mess & humans are responsible for that! We are the only species which destroys ecosytems, and each otber! This photo is a clear example that ANIMALS are intelligient & have social/family structures just like humans!
Saddest thing I’ve seen and there have been plenty eh!
The Government may have let us down, but we will never let down all the wonderful and unique wildlife affected by the #bushfires
I am sick and fed up with 😤 selfish #leaders lacking #empathy for wildlife and #OurPlanet , in this case #ScottMorrison
This is absolutely heartbreaking 😢💔

37,000 koalas. 💔
In reply to @newscomauHQ
I hope they prosecute the people who started this fire to the fullest extent of the law. Perhaps it would just be better to release them into the public at this point and see what happens to them.... Absolutely heartbreaking!
In reply to @newscomauHQ
I'm sorry. So sorry, you beautiful animals of our land. I hope our leaders pull their bloody socks up soon.
Caused by #ClimateCatastrophe !🇦🇺🔥😢
@Murdoch papers on the forefront of years of denial!🤥
#boycottnewscorp !🤥💩
I actually cannot cope
Ohhhhhhhh soooooooo heartbreaking 😪💔
This is 💔😭. My heart is breaking for this beautiful country, its people, its land and its animals. A confronting image that I find really hard to look at, but the world needs to see. I keep Australia in my thoughts and prayers.
Heartbreaking 💔 🐨
