Koalas Need Our Help

Watching videos/photos of Koalas being rescued from a charred/burning forests in Australia is heart-breaking and devastating. More than 350 Koalas are reported being dead and these numbers are growing. Those who live far from Australia (just like me) can't help physically rescue them, but a small amount of money/donation to sustain the hospital/facilities, volunteers and rescuers is of great help. Koala is just one of the many species that perish from the bushfire and they need our help, so please donate through the GoFundMe page and through other legitimate websites. Help those who support animal welfare.

Koalas 'are almost extinct' after devastating bushfires

  • Koalas 'are almost extinct' after devastating bushfires and drought

    Slow-moving koalas, who curl up in trees to avoid danger, have been trapped by flames and heard to yelp in distress.

    Fires engulfing more than 3.7 million acres of eastern Australia have also destroyed 80% of their habitat.

    Eucalyptus tree leaves are a koala’s main source of nutrients, an adult can eat up to 2lb of leaves a day.

    But Eucalyptus take months to re-grow after a fire, so many of the marsupials could starve.

  • Lewis the koala rescued by gran in iconic bush fire footage dies of his injuries

    A koala who won hearts the world over when he was rescued by a brave grandmother during Australia's ferocious bush fires has tragically died.

    The hospital treating the marsupial - named Lewis - said he has had to be put to sleep because his injuries were 'too serious to treat.'

    Footage of local Toni Doherty's rescue of the koala from New South Wales' devastating fire was beamed around the world.

    The gran was captured making a daring dash into the out-of-control blaze in Long Flat, west of Port Macquarie, to pluck the 'screaming' koala to safety.

    Ellenborough Lewis, who was 14 years old, was named after his rescuer's grandchild.

Epiphany History Selection Mode

Since my last blog post I have been working on implementing a selection mode for Epiphany’s History Dialog. The selection mode is a pretty common pattern seen throughout GNOME applications. It’s used to easily manipulate a set of selected items from a list or grid. I’ve used the selection mode from GNOME Boxes as a reference when implementing it in Epiphany. This is how the History Dialog looked like before... Read more
