Koala Colonies Decimated by Wildfires in Australia. In recent weeks, over 100 fires have raced through eastern Australia, destroying more than two million acres of land. . In Port Macquarie, Australia, that land is an important habitat for one of Australia’s most prized species: koalas. . Unlike other animals who flee from fires, koalas scale to the top of trees and curl into a protective ball, waiting for the danger to pass. . As a result, an estimated 350 of the nearly 700 koalas living in the area have been "incinerated.". According to Cheyne Flanagan, a clinical director at the Koala Hospital in Port Macquarie, the recorded deaths are a "national tragedy,” and the numbers are only expected to grow. "We crunched the numbers up to 350, but these fires have gotten worse, and the numbers are probably higher … We are not finding bodies because they are incinerating to ash."

More than half of Walmart's revenue comes from food and grocery sales, reports Business Insider. This might allow the retailer to manage pressure from tariffs. This means those costs largely fall on American businesses. Businesses can either absorb them or pass them down to consumers. Economists have warned that tariffs would increase prices and cast uncertainty on business plans.

Adam Schiff, via CNN. Bill Taylor, the top U.S. official in Ukraine, used his statement to lay out a specific timeline of his interactions with top U.S. and Ukraine officials. . At one point, Taylor spoke about Trump’s decision to withhold aid from the Ukraine unless they agreed to investigate Biden’s son, Hunter. . “Ambassador Sondland responded that President Trump cares more about the investigations of Biden, which [Rudy] Giuliani was pressing for.” Bill Taylor, via CNN.
