Learning about fire in the bush

Every summer our urban bushland and the animals that live there are threatened by fires. This interactive story about a real bushfire in Kings Park is told through the eyes of Tawny Frogmouth.

Students learn about the effects of fire on our unique banksia woodland ecosystem with a focus on how the plants and animals cope after fire.

The program includes a visit from a Kings Park firefighter.
