It is worth remembering that since September last year, fires in Australia have caused numerous deaths of animals and at least 25 people, including three firefighters.

According to researchers, the fires in the region are natural, since they result from the disastrous combination of high temperatures, prolonged droughts and strong winds.

Besides Leonardo DiCaprio, other celebrities mobilized and are contributing in different ways. Even a model decided to send a ‘nude’ of her to each internet user who proved a donation to Australia.
