Over 3,000 reservists have been called up to help fight the devastating bushfires which are ravaging Australia…

The 16 Regiment Emergency Support Force went viral on social media this weekend after they posted some photographs of the members helping to feed displaced koalas during their time off.

“16 Regiment Emergency Support Force have been using their rest periods to lend a helping hand at the Cleland Wildlife Park , supporting our furry friends during feeding time and by building climbing mounts inside the park. A great morale boost for our hard working team in the Adelaide Hills,” said the post.

According to reports, the bush fires have destroyed more than 12 million hectares of land in Australia’s eastern and southern states. The Australian Capital Territory’s Rural Fire Service reports that there are still more than 55 fires burning across New South Wales, where high temperatures have been forecast for the weekend, ramping up bush fire danger.
