Butterfly that survived wildfire drinks from aid worker's palm

The video posted showed another aid worker pouring water into the palm of his colleague's hand as the butterfly continued to drink.

Several NGO's have set up field hospitals in the areas affected by the wildfires where they have rescued mostly turtles, while many livestock have died.

Firefighters continued to battle blazes which President Tayyip Erdogan has described as the worst Turkey has suffered, devastating tens of thousands of hectares of forest and forcing thousands of Turks and tourists to flee.

Eight people have died since the fires first broke out last week and environmentalists had warned of fresh danger as the flames encroached on the power plant.
