Lewis the koala dies one week after being rescued from Australian fires

The now-famous koala named Lewis died in a local koala hospital just days after a local woman saved him from a wildfire in the Australian state of New South Wales. Lewis was treated for his wounds, but they were so severe he could not be saved.

A total area of over 42 million acres has been burned leaving an estimated 1 billion animals dead. While finally out, the fires have caused the biggest devastation of habitats in recorded history.

As blazes raged through the country, 34 people have died, and thousands of homes were destroyed since the emergency began in November.

The impact on wildlife is yet unknown, but vast areas of habitat have been scorched. Officials fear the toll on native flora and woodland will be immense.

The country's koala populations have been a major victim of the bushfires, with thousands of the animals feared killed.
