Bush Fires in Australia
Bush Fires in Australia are frequent events during the hotter days of the year due to climate change (mostly hot!). Each year, such fires impact extensive areas. While they can cause property damage and loss of human life, certain native flora in Australia have evolved to rely on bush fires as a means of reproduction and fire events are interwoven and an essential part of the ecology or the continent.
