The clip shared on Reddit by a user with the handle Steve_OH showed a vehicle in which the wild animals were ferried out of the fire-ravaged Kangaroo Island, which is known as Australia's answer to the Galapagos Islands, as it has rich wildlife.

New images from NASA illustrate the devastating impact of the wildfires in Australia.
Kangaroo Island's lush greenery is shown in a December 16 image taken by NASA's Terra satellite.
NASA's Terra satellite recently snapped before and after imagery of the island, which lies off the mainland of South Australia.
The NASA image showed that most of the burned areas were in the west of the island, including the Flinders Chase National Park, where the fires were originally started by lightning. The devastation can be clearly seen, with brown burn scars and active fires where lush greenery once stood.
Residents in the path of wildfires razing southeast Australia were urged to evacuate Thursday if they don't intend to defend their homes as hot and windy conditions are forecast to escalate the danger over the next two days.
Experts working on the island say the fires have killed thousands of koalas and kangaroos, and also have raised questions about whether any members of a mouse-like marsupial species that carries its young in a pouch have survived. The loss of vegetation and wildlife is a disturbing outcome of the wildfires throughout the country. The park is a popular place to spot duckbill platypus, one of Australia's most beloved species.
Dickman said that because Australia often sees the effects of climate change before other parts of the world, these fires could be a preview of what's to come globally.
