3 Dogs Are Replanting Chilean Forests Destroyed By Fire

These 3 dogs are replanting Chilean forests destroyed by fire and with news like this, it’s incredibly hard not to get excited. This is how our world should work and look like. Humans and animals working together for the greater good of Mother Nature.

Last year, central Chile’s forests were hit by wildfires in the El Maule region of the South American country. More than 100 wildfires have destroyed the area, making it the worst wildfire season in the country’s recorded history.

The total estimated damage caused by this catastrophe is $333 million. Replanting trees and plants in the affected area is not easy and it’s definitely not cheap. It’s pretty hard to repair such a natural disaster, but somehow, someone found a way.

6-year-old Das and her 2 daughters, Olivia and Summer, are the 3 Border Collies who have started replanting the Chilean forests affected by wildfires! Yes, that’s right! Three dogs are replanting these forests.

Das, Olivia and Summer run around the areas where forests used to be with backpacks full of native plants and tree seeds. While they run around, the seeds are spread throughout the entire affected area, leading to new sprouts to emerge from the ground.

“They reeeeeally love [it]!! It’s a country trip, where they can run as fast as they can and have a great time,” Francisca and Constanza Torres, the two sisters who own and train the dogs say.

If you were to employ people to spread these seeds, the task would be much more expensive and it would take longer. These dogs can cover up to 18 miles each day and can scatter approximately 20 pounds of seeds.

Francisca and Constanza receive donations for the seeds, but most of the costs are covered from their own pockets. Talk about modern day heroes, right?
