FOREST FIRE REPORT

Forests are Essential for Life

Forests are essential for life on Earth. Three hundred million people worldwide live in forests and 1.6 billion depend directly on them for their livelihoods. Forests also provide habitat for a vast array of plants and animals, many of which are still undiscovered.

3 Billion Animals hurt in Wild Fires

Nearly three billion animals – mammals, reptiles, birds, and frogs – were killed or displaced by Australia’s devastating 2019-20 bushfires.

It’s almost three times an earlier estimate released in January.

The breakdown is 143 million mammals, 2.46 billion reptiles, 180 million birds, and 51 million frogs.

Those figures are revealed in an interim report entitled Australia’s 2019-2020 Bushfires: The Wildlife Toll, commissioned by the World Wide Fund for Nature and believed to be world first research.

Cost of Wild Fires

The 2020 wildfire season in California killed more than 30 people, destroyed some 8,500 structures, and torched a record-breaking 4 million acres of land—double the

High-resolution Satellite map shows fires cause of 1/3 of global forest 2001 and 2019

Researchers have produced the first ever 30m (30 meter pixel) resolution global map of fire-induced forest loss. The study shows that one third of global forest loss between 2001 and 2019 was due to fires, which is higher than previous estimates. The area of fire-related forest loss is increasing globally, particularly within the tropical primary forests of Africa and Latin America. The researchers hope that their map helps improve modeling of future forest fire loss rates under various climate crisis scenarios.

Forests are essential to BioDiversity

A single tree can be home to hundreds of species of insect, fungi, moss, mammals, and plants. Depending on the kind of food and shelter they need, different forest animals require different types of habitat. Without trees, forest creatures would have nowhere to call home.
