Planes drop thousands of kilograms of carrots and potatoes for animals

Air planes are being used to drop thousands of kilograms of carrots and sweet potato to hungry wildlife stranded amid the Australian bushfire crisis. The New South Wales government commissioned the service titled ‘Operation Rock Wallaby’ which started a week ago and aims to feed the state’s colonies of brush-tailed rock wallabies. o far, they have dropped more than 2,200kg of fresh vegetables for animals living below.

Matt Kean, environment minister for New South Wales, said although the animals have successfully managed to flee the fires, they’re now outside of their natural habitat and are therefore left without food.
