The NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service began Operation Rock Wallaby today to help feed thousands of impacted wildlife.
The operation dropped thousands of kilograms of food across NSW to help feed the brush-tailed Rock-wallaby colonies in the state.
The bushfires across Australia have left an estimated 1.25 billion animals dead according to the WWF.
The rock wallaby was identified by the World Wide Fund for Nature as being particularly at-risk due to the destruction of its habitat.
Kangaroo Island open for travel
The chief officer of the SA Country Fire Service has said it is safe for tourists and residents to travel to and from Kangaroo Island.
The restrictions were lifted on friday but chief officer Mark Jones issues a statement today saying there was still some confusion.
"Under my powers as chief officer, I temporarily enacted restrictions on the island to ensure the priority of emergency services. The restrictions were removed on Friday and people are able to travel to and from the island."
The news comes after Prime Minister Scott Morrison pleaded with Australians to not scrap upcoming holiday plans at the island.
"Even here on Kangaroo Island, where a third of the island has obviously been decimated – two-thirds of it is open and ready for business.
"It's important to keep the local economies vibrant at these times."
However conditions on the island are expected to worsen as early as Monday according to defence chiefs.
The Army is sending two Chinook helicopters to Kangaroo island this weekend ahead of "expected difficult conditions" on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
Thirty New Zealand Army engineers have already been deployed with equipment to Kangaroo Island to work with Australian Army personnel providing assistance.

A dedicated Instagram for the effort called Koalas of NYC has gained closed to 1000 followers since launching a day ago.
"Our agency has Australian roots and more than half of our team are Australian, so we are taking action and helping our furry friends back home, all the way from NYC," said Diane Villavieja who oversees operations at the agency.
Ms Villavieja told adweek that the agency had placed 100 koalas around the city in locations including Times Square, Washington Square Park and Columbus Circle.
