In early 2020, Jo-Anne flew to Australia to document the stories of animals affected by the devastating wildfires and the rescue efforts of those helping them. This eastern grey kangaroo and her joey pictured near Mallacoota, Victoria, were among the lucky ones. The kangaroo barely took her eyes off Jo-Anne as she walked calmly to the spot where she could get a great photo. She had just enough time to crouch down and press the shutter release before the kangaroo hopped away into the burned eucalyptus plantation. An estimated three billion animals were killed or displaced in fires that season.
