Important Video Evidence


Videos About Fire

There are several very good videos produced by the Department of Parks and Wildlife that describe many aspects of the impact of fire on forested land in Western Australia. They cover the impact of various intensities of fire on plants and animals and present some examples  of the benefits of prescribed burning in minimising the impact of high intensity bushfires. They can be seen at the URLs below.
