Fire Down Below

Australian native and Bridgewater State University alumna Melany Heather (Ferber) Stoppenbach is organizing a fundraiser to help wildlife affected by the ongoing bushfires that have destroyed more than 1.5 million acres in her homeland.

The 2003 graduate and her husband, Chris, live in Scarborough, a suburb in south Australia. They have been exposed to the smoke of the so-called Megafire, but are not in danger. The couple does, however, have family members living in Victoria and New South Wales who have been affected.
