Welcome to the Fire and Restoration Network

This resource hub and discussion forum is hosted by Nature Conservation Council’s Bushfire Program. 

Our aim is to share project stories and engage people in discussions about how fire is being used to support ecological restoration. This is a place where practitioners and researchers can share experiences, challenges, questions and new ideas.

We invite you to read our articles, view related resources and contribute to discussions on weeds, fauna, Cultural burning, restoration principles, fire thresholds and more.

You can learn more about the network here.

Latest Project Stories
Does pyrodiversity really promote biodiversity? Local knowledge is important when managing fire for plant and animal conservation. An article from the Ecological Society of Australia notes:
  • Some studies show that more plant and animal species live in landscapes with a high diversity of fire histories, while others show no such relationship.
  • The variation in fire regimes that will promote plant and animal conservation depends on the type of ecosystem.
  • Fire management will be most effective when it is guided by local knowledge of plants, animals and and the habitats they depend on.
