Post-Bushfire Mangrove Recovery: NSW Community-Led Efforts 

26-08-2022 15:23

Mangroves – plants that live in the intertidal environment – burned extensively in NSW during the 2019-2020 summer bushfires. However, mangrove response and recovery from bushfire damage is a novel topic, both here in Australia and worldwide.

This presentation will explore the Post-Bushfire Mangrove Recovery project, which involved field visits at three locations in the NSW South Coast (Wonboyn, Moruya, Batemans Bay) where mangroves were killed or severely damaged by the 2019-2020 fires.

In addition to sharing the findings, Dr Claudia Santori will outline how this project has employed a variety of inter-disciplinary approaches and methods, such as drone & GIS mapping for bushfire impact and recovery assessments, the value of citizen scientist training & oyster farmer involvement, and field methods such as transects and camera traps.
