The Australian wildfires continue to wreak havoc with more than two dozen people dead along with hundreds of thousands of animals. Parts of the country have been leveled with at least 12 million acres of land impacted by the fires.

The World Wide Fund for Nature-Australia estimates approximately half a billion animals have been killed and the fires could change the country forever, according to NBC News.

Officials expect the fires to continue for months.

The Putnam Rotary Club took up a collection to support Rotary Internationals efforts to help the people of Australia and the affected animals.
