Be Prepared: How to Help Birds After a Fire

Devastating fires in North America and around the world have left surviving wildlife homeless and often without what they need to survive. If you live in an area where fires have taken their toll, you can help wildlife in a number of ways. Last January, amid the brushfires in Australia, we published the following article with detailed and practical information on how to help wildlife after a fire. Regardless of what country is affected, the practical steps we can take are the same. Given the interest in helping surviving birds get their lives back together after the fires in the US, here is a reprise of our article from January. Our thanks to BirdLife Australia for creating this very practical guide.
