VICTORIA, Australia – As bushfires continue to burn out of control across several Australian states, there have been many gestures of support from Pagan organisations and individuals across the country.
At the time of writing, there are still more than eighty bushfires burning on Australia’s eastern coast, and more than thirty of those are burning out of control. Twenty-nine people are confirmed dead, along with over a billion animals. Over 25 million acres of land have been burned so far. Thousands have been evacuated from their homes, often in the dead of night. When the Victorian coastal town of Mallacoota was cut off by bushfires on all sides, the Australian Navy was called in to evacuate over 4000 people by ship.
