Five million hectares of NSW forest have been burned in the recent bushifres, which is over half the entire forest and well over twice as much anything recorded before, so the scale of the problem is huge.
Listen belowto the fascinating interview with Dr Owen Price, from UOW’s School of Environment & Life Sciences to give you the facts, plus pose some discoveries that are yet to be made from the actual impact and hope for the future.
Hear how the bushfires have directly impacted our local trees and wildlife – and what the options are for regeneration, particularly now the rain is here (hoorah).
“It’s bigger than ever.” Dr Price says, but the good news is is that the Australian bush is extremely resilient and “take care of themselves” and with all this much awaited rain some of this regrowth will already be well on its way.
Isn’t Mother Nature absolutely amazing? Let’s work together to protect her for the future.
