Invitation: Burning Matters

By Steve Gates

Dear NRPG members and interested,

An important and topical health and environmental issue – worth learning more about if you aren’t already aware of the new evidence and research showing there are much less destructive and more sustainable ways to mitigate fire risk in our forests, than the current prescribed burning practice.

Kind regards,
Steve Gates

President, NRPG Bushcarers

Join us for an evening of short films and discussion from scientific, cultural, and historical perspectives about the issues of current prescribed burning practice, why it matters, and what you can do to help.  Picture: Burnt Forest. Why Changes to prescibed burning are needed. Thursday 14th March, Walyalup Civic Centre Fremantle 6pm  There is growing evidence that current practices of prescribed burning are having many adverse impacts on biodiversity across the southwest of WA. Some of the most damaging prescribed fires have impacted vulnerable ecosystems including peats, wetlands, granite outcrops, and habitats of threatened species. Community and conservation scientists have informed the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions (DBCA) and government of these effects yet despite this, there is little acknowledgement of the cumulative damage occurring over much of our Conservation Estate. Fire regimes that cause biodiversity decline are now recognised as a key threatening process under the Federal Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation (EPBC) Act.
