NSW Nature Conservation Council’s 2020 Bushfire Conference, Sydney NSW – 19-21 May 2020

The NSW Nature Conservation Council’s Bushfire Program is hosting it’s 12th Biennial Bushfire Conference, ‘Cool, Warm Hot: the burning questions‘, to bring together academics, agencies, Traditional Owners, practitioners and communities to explore how different fire intensities can influence ecosystems and communities in a changing climate. Call for abstracts is now open. Presentations will investigate the effects of low, medium and high intensity fires on the four sub-themes: climate change; fire ecology; ferals, weeds and restoration; and community resilience. The conference will examine how to incorporate and respond to cool, warm and hot fires in fire management as part of an optimal fire regime to achieve multiple objectives for biodiversity and cultural values, hazard reduction objectives and community resilience. Click here for more information.
