A kangaroo hops away from a pair of White Rhinos as they eat hay at Taronga Western Plains Zoo on September 18, 2019 located in Dubbo, Australia. Due to drought conditions, many kangaroos have moved into the zoo to seek water and food. Regional Australian towns are expected to run out of water as soon as November if drought conditions continue across New South Wales. Despite some small amounts of rainfall in recent days, without a significant downpour there are fears the Macquarie River will run dry, affecting supply to Dubbo, Cobar, Nyngan and Narromine.
