New on the Fire and Restoration Network Hub
Friday, 30th June 2017
The Fire and Restoration Network Hub provides a platform for natural resource management staff, bushcare and Landcare groups, academics and volunteers to come together and discuss how fire can be used to rehabilitate degraded landscapes and restore ecological integrity. The Hub came into existence after NCC’s 2015 Bushfire Conference to share stories, information, challenges and new ideas about the use of fire for ecological restoration.
Recent articles published on the Hub include a spotlight on the Burning Hotspots – Gondwana Threatened Species and Fire project, which aims to protect threatened populations of eight species in the Northern Rivers region of NSW, and an article on a field experiment in early-stage restoration of Cumberland Plain Woodland in Western Sydney, written by NCC’s Bushfire Program Coordinator Michelle Rose.
