If you looked outside your window now, you’d see that the once clear sky is covered by fog
no thanks to the forest fires in Kalimantan and Sumatera.
This phenomenon has not only affected us, humans, but it has also taken a toll on our animals as most of them are losing their homes. What’s even sadder is that some of them – like the birds – can’t even roam freely anymore because the toxic air is killing them.
A netizen, Susan Lankester shared a video on Twitter and tbh, we are beyond mortified after watching the video. In the video, it can be seen that birds are lying dead on the ground as the haze has affected their well-being.
Her tweet was accompanied by a caption which read,
“Birds (are) falling from the sky due to (the) toxic air that we’re breathing? This is due to irresponsible businesses causing harm to humans and animals.”
You can watch the sad video which has gotten over 7,300 retweets here:

A voice – which belongs to the person recording the horrifying incident – said: “The haze has gone crazy and because of it, the birds are falling dead.” Oh no!
Based on the language used in the above video, this incident has most likely taken place in Indonesia where the air quality is at a hazardous level now. This was proven in another viral video that shows Kalimantan covered in (the) haze that was caused by the forest fires.
Currently, the API (Air Pollution Index) level of the state has reached 1000 and it is deemed hazardous. Further check, in API measurements, Kalimantan hits 500!
You can check out the video below to understand the severity of the haze in Kalimantan:

We hope that the Indonesian authorities will do everything in their might to make the situation better in Kalimantan and Sumatera. On that note, we urge everyone to stay indoors as much as possible during this terrible weather and keep in mind to always stay hydrated. Take care, guys!
