” The haunting images of the fires of 2019 in Australia have etched their mark into my heart. Without even watching or listening to the news I could feel the pain and hear the cries of all the fire consumed… the devastation still breaks my heart and even more so when I see that, even in the aftermath of this destruction, man still goes and clears more trees. Where is all our precious unique wildlife to live? That is the question that cries for an answer. The koala is a tourist icon, but little is truly done to help their survival. They were killed for their fur not all that long ago, their homes are now highways and concrete jungles and then came the fire. This was no ordinary fire, it raged all across this vast continent and so many animals lost their lives When you look into the eyes of another you understand that they are also divine, they are part of creation and they breathe and love like you.” Winka von Fahland (Vynka)
