A new study has recently confirmed what Indigenous Australians have known all along: our raptors are using bushfires to corner their prey.
It’s been suggested that the introduction of Australian eucalyptus trees may be to blame for the rapid spread of the Southern California wildfires. But experts say the claims just don’t stack up.
Heat records have tumbled across NSW as the state suffered through the weekend’s heatwave. A new analysis shows that climate change made this kind of event much less of a rarity.

Researchers have found a disaster “hotspot” in northern New South Wales, where nearly half of the state’s most disadvantaged communities are found.
Aboriginal fire management should be part of the solution to destructive bushfires, argues David Bowman, a Professor of Environmental Change Biology at the University of Tasmania.
