Australia | Under pressure from enviros, PM pledges A$50M for wildlife recovery from bushfires

The Morrison government has pledged $50m to help rescue and protect wildlife affected by the bushfire crisis, with a promise of more to come, as environment groups warn some species may have already been driven to extinction.

Government ministers said the commitment, drawn from the government’s $2bn bushfire recovery fund, was a downpayment to be spent immediately on priorities in burned areas and planning for longer-term protection and restoration of habitat.
