The current state of our climate shouldn’t be dismissed as a ‘new normal’. The hard truth is many of our ecosystems will not recover from the damage.
First come the beetles, then the birds: how nature is surviving, and thriving, after a summer of fires.
By all means, rescue an injured koala. But by pulling out weeds after the fires, you could also help rescue a whole ecosystem.
Forest thinning is a good way to lower the risk of fire, but there are potential downsides.
