Understanding how to protect threatened ecological communities from intense fire events is critical as the effects of climate change increase. The Threatened Species Research Hub conducted surveys with conservation land managers to better understand how to best protect wildlife and these threatened communities.
A fact sheet with their main findings includes recommendations for conservationists before and after fire events. Key recommendations include improving access to relevant and current ecological data prior to bush fire events to better inform management actions and formalising conservation assets as a priority within emergency management frameworks.
