HELP AREAS AFFECTED BY WILDFIRES
BY JUSTIN GIBSON
ustralia, California, the Amazon, Puerto Rico —
it's tough to watch climate change devastate some
of the world’s most unique, most vibrant locales.
The images that poured through our social media feeds
of Australia recently — where dozens of fires collectively
ravaged huge swaths of the continent and caused
unprecedented destruction — were particularly heart-
wrenching, inspiring millions to donate to various relief
efforts. But there’s another way you can help.
Like a drop of rain or a single vote in an election, it’s
the little things that add up. Besides your spending being
another way of voting for what you condone, tourism
is often a driving force of recovery for affected locales.
With that in mind, Australia could definitely use your
help, and you could probably use a vacation. Here’s a
head start on where to head and how to help.
