The Nature Conservation Council of NSW’s 12th Biennial Bushfire Conference, postponed from 2020 due to COVID-19 saftey restrictions, will now take place online as a virtual conference on:
Tuesday 4th of May, Wednesday 5th of May and Thursday 6th of May 2021 with a live field trip (date TBC)
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.
Building on themes from previous conferences, we will continue to showcase scientific research, current practices, on-ground projects and cultural burning to highlight lessons from across a range of ecosystems and communities.
