Right now, Australia is being ravaged by the most devastating and unprecedented bushﬁre season, with an estimated 10.7 million hectares of Australian land burnt and 1.25 billion animals killed.
JNF Australia has partnered with the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) to support wildlife and nature recovery efforts.
A staged recovery and restoration effort will involve:
- Restoring the ecological structure and function of core areas across Eastern Australia
- Protecting and enhancing forest corridors to enable movement, adaptation and recovery of koalas and other native animals
- Establishing supplementary habitat for small, tree-dependent mammals through the installation of nest boxes to replace the natural tree hollows that have been lost. Native understorey will be established to increase insect and small vertebrate prey numbers, as well as strategic management of feral predators
- Strengthening the health and value of habitat in unburnt regions whilst helping to protect these areas from future fire events
