Days Of Our Lives Alum Isabel Durant Is Raising Awareness About Australian Flooding

While Isabel Durant's "Days of Our Lives" character Claire Brady is in Africa helping humanitarian causes, the Australian-born actress who has perfected an American accent to further her acting career is also advocating for a cause close to her heart. On March 9, after a week of torrential downpours and catastrophic rainfall, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison was forced to declare the severe weather a national emergency after 20 people had already been killed in some of the worst flooding the country had ever seen, according to The New York Times.


While Durant has not been seen on "DOOL" since Claire left for Africa to help Theo Carver (Cameron Johnson) with the organization he had been working with, she still left an impression on fans during her brief stint on the soap from 2020-2021. After all, Claire is a legacy character belonging to two of the show's most prominent families, the Bradys and the Hortons. 

Fans have been invested in Claire's story for years and still follow Durant on social media, where she recently asked for help for her native Australia.

Isabel Durant has a plea for her country

When the heavy rains that led to historic flooding and prompted thousands of Australians to evacuate (via ABC News) first started hitting Australia's east coast, former "Days of Our Lives" star Isabel Durant took to Instagram to raise awareness on how the public could help people and animals in need on the other side of the world.


"How you can help Australian communities and animals right now," Durant wrote next to a series of graphics explaining the harm being done to Australia's natural habitat. She then gave instructions on how people can contribute funds, writing, "1. Koori Mail GOFUNDME ⁣ 2. GIVIT ⁣ 3. Animal Welfare League NSW ⁣ 4. Do your part in addressing the climate crisis that is making these disasters hit our communities more frequently and with more force...Thank you X ."

Durant's series of photos she asked fans to scroll through explains what has been going on in Australia. "Parts of my home country are battling devastating floods," she wrote on one. "Lives have been lost both human and animal. Communities will be suffering from the devastating impact for years to come."


The actress went on to explain that climate change is causing these frequent disasters and that there are things we can do every day to help combat it, including simple acts like reusing water bottles and remembering to turn the lights off when leaving the room.
