Bushfire Recovery Projects

Devastating bushfires have impacted Australia’s biodiversity on a scale not previously seen since record-keeping began in the mid-1800s.
Become a citizen scientist and spot animals in photographs captured by automated cameras in burnt areas.
With your help researchers can better understand the impact of fire on our biodiversity and ecosystems.
