Australia's koalas are having a hard time this year. While bushfires rage through the country's southern territories, koalas are suffering from bad burns on their feet, and are relying on rescuers to save them from the blaze.
Last week, the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) made a call for koala mittens - cotton paw protectors that people could sew and send in to help care for singed koalas. The organization received an outpouring of support - so much so that they announced they'd no longer need more paw protectors.
"What started off as a local campaign, just asking the Australian public has just absolutely gone global and viral," Josey Sharrad of IFAW told Australia's ABC News.
"We're now getting offers from as far afield as Russia, Kazakhstan, China, the UK and the US."
The koalas are continuing to recover at the Adelaide Koala & Wildlife Hospital - six of the small marsupials are stable and receiving care from veterinarians.
