Victoria's bushfire emergency: Biodiversity response and recovery
The Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning has developed a report on the impact of the Victorian fires on biodiversity. The report, Victoria’s bushfire emergency: Biodiversity response and recovery, assesses the fire extent as of 11 January 2020 and will continue to be updated as the bushfire situation in Victoria changes and as more information becomes available.
A range of methods were used to develop the report, including desktop analyses and consultation with key agencies and species experts.
The report describes the impact on species and vegetation communities. It includes actions for the immediate, short, medium and long term for effective recovery of species and their habitats.
