Share your story with PhD Researcher Mercedes Ondik

Hotspots is collaborating with a UNSW PhD Candidate, Mercedes Ondik, who is researching the impacts of the 2019-20 fire season in NSW, and we would like to offer you the opportunity to participate in this research.

You can share your experiences by completing a 15 min survey and an online interview by July 31st. The first 20 people to complete both the survey and the interview will be awarded a free copy of the book "Ocean Shores to Desert Dunes: The Native Vegetation of New South Wales and the ACT" by Professor David A. Keith.

Complete the survey here:

You do not need to have attended a Hotspots event or have been directly impacted by the 2019/20 fires to participate.

The outcomes of this research may contribute to a better understanding of effective fire management actions for risk management and ecological recovery. The knowledge gained from the research could help Hotspots improve training styles and content for future workshops.

If you are interested in getting involved, please see a letter from Mercedes ( ) with more detail about participating in her study, and see Hotspots’ letter of support here ( ).
