We hope not a single kangaroo has suffered from such a “carrotfall”.

The Australian National Park and Wildlife Service have organized food delivery for animals that live in hard-to-reach spots and areas affected by large-scale forest fires.

The fire destroyed their usual food, so the Australian authorities decided to feed the animals from the air. For this, thousands of kilograms of food were loaded onto helicopters, mainly carrots, and sweet potatoes. Australian services simply threw food from a height to the ground.

The New South Wales State Minister of the Environment (who suffered most from the fires) nicknamed Operation Rock Wallaby, in honor of the animals who were the first to receive food delivery.
