These were the saddest pictures:
A kangaroo stands on ground blackened by a bushfire near Coonabarabran, about 350 km (217 miles) north-west of Sydney in the state of New South Wales. A large bushfire has destroyed 53 homes and burnt more than 55 thousand hectares since it started almost two weeks ago.

An Indonesian animal vendor stands behind a cage full of monkeys at the Sungai Sarik market in Padang Pariaman, West Sumatra, Indonesia. Being one of the largest coconut-producing areas in West Sumatra, the Padang Pariaman people use the monkeys to pick the coconuts from the trees. Female monkeys are valued around $25 (16), while male monkeys are valued at around $12 (8).

I think we must be aware that wild life is suffering and besieged by the terrible consequences of global climate change. The photographs are as always excellent, story of the lives of animals clear.
Thank you Cher -
