25 May 🔥Australian Bushfire Recovery Project
Do you live in a region affected by the recent bushfires? Are you a keen photographer?
Over 46,000,000 acres burnt in the 2019-2020 bushfire season in eastern Australia, including South Australia, New South Wales, Victoria and Queensland. Understanding how the environment recovers from this unprecedented fire season is an important scientific goal.
As a citizen scientist, your observations from recently burnt areas are important. Providing it’s safe to do so, take a walk in areas of burnt bushland, and upload observations to the Environment Recovery Project. We are also interested in common species just as much as rare species.
Award-winning documentary production company, Northern Pictures, are seeking photographers working on bushfire-related projects (stills and video) – from when the fires first hit, to now, documenting the regrowth. They will be used for a special natural history documentary to be screened internationally.
Help scientists understand how species can recover from bushfire – be involved today.
