Bushfires Can Have Devastating Consequences for the Ecosystem (Source: iStock)


While fire is an inherent part of the Australian landscape, the bushfires that occurred in eastern Australia from September 2019 to early February 2020 were unprecedented (Figure 1). Bushfires across the nation burned more than 12.6 million hectares (an area slightly bigger than Belgium, Denmark, and the Netherlands combined), emitted about 430 tonnes of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere (about three-quarters of the country's total annual carbon dioxide emissions), directly caused at least 33 deaths and over one billion animals were killed (https://www.abc.net.au/news/science/2020-03-05/bushfire-crisis-five-big-numbers/12007716).
