Oct 31, 2019 11:25 IST

In a tragic incident, over 350 Koalas are feared to be dead in an Australian bushfire that struck the mid-north coast of New South Wales, say wildlife rescuers. Almost 2000 hectares of land, which was a primary breeding ground for the vulnerable species, caught fire. Many experts dubbed it as a national tragedy. The fire is believed to have been sparked by a lightning strike.
