Officials are dropping vegetables via helicopter to feed Australian wildlife

Thousands of kilograms of vegetables, namely carrots and sweet potatoes, are being dropped over New South Wales to feed the wildlife affected by the devastating Australian bushfires.

Matt Kean, the minister for Energy and Environment for New South Wales, is calling it “Operation Rock Wallaby,” and shared a photo of a member of the New South Wales National Parks and Wildlife Service dropping buckets of carrots from a helicopter over the endangered Brush-tailed Rock-wallaby colonies below.
