‘Species recovery strategies’ after fires
AUSTRALIAN experts at a three-day bushfire workshop have established recovery strategies for wildlife on Kangaroo Island.
Almost a third of Kangaroo Island, in the state of South Australia, was burned by bushfire that raged between December and February, devastating wildlife and infrastructure and killing two people.
Australia’s Threatened Species Commissioner Sally Box identified the Kangaroo Island dunnart, a small marsupial, as the species most in need of assistance. The workshop produced strategies for the recovery of four species.
