    Survey input needed: Post-bushfire management actions

    ANU fauna mgt 320You are invited to participate in an important survey being conducted by the Australian National University and the Charles Darwin University which closes on 14th February 2021.

    The survey primarily addresses post-wildfire management actions that are implemented for fauna. The preferred target audience includes practitioners and conservation managers from within government, non-government organisations, and private organisations, working on public or private land; particularly for those involved with the planning, implementing and monitoring of post-wildfire management actions for fauna conservation and recovery.

    Answers provided will help to understand the range of management approaches that are implemented for fauna post wildfire and the effectiveness of these actions in supporting fauna conservation and recovery post fire. They are specifically requesting information on management actions implemented within one year following any wildfire (not limited to 2019/20 wildfire), and actions that are intended to benefit fauna. 

    A second, and complementary, part of the survey is focused on the 2019/20 wildfires and addresses planning and decision making before and during this event for threatened species (both flora and fauna) and threatened ecological communities. 

    Completion of the survey should take 15-20 minutes. By clicking on the survey link and providing responses, consent is being given for the two universities’ research projects, to use the information provided. Please refer to the ANU & CDU information sheets for more information.

    The ethical aspects of this research have been approved by the ANU Human Research Ethics Committee (Protocol 2020/704), and by the Charles Darwin University Human Research Ethics Committee (ID H20104).  

    Dr Natasha Robinson, Research Fellow and Project Leader with ANU's Fenner School of Environment and Society, has kindly brought matter to our attention. The projects are funded through the National Environmental Science Program (NESP), Threatened Species Recovery Hub. For further information on this project, see NESP TSR project 8.4.4 or contact Natasha Robinson or Kelly de Bie.
