The South Australian Museum is devastated by the loss and destruction left behind by the Australian bushfire crisis. Our heartfelt thoughts go out to the affected communities, those who have lost loved ones and their homes and for the enormous loss of Australian wildlife who have died during these terrible bushfires.
Our scientists work to understand, study and protect native wildlife and their habitats and it’s heartbreaking to see this extreme loss in biodiversity. The koala population on Kangaroo Island is the only known disease-free population, making it critically important to the long term survival of the species. ⠀
