The Beyond the Bushfires series brings the words of scientists who are actively involved in research and science communication into classrooms all over Australia. Students will explore evidence-based research embedded in the context of real-world practice.

These lessons draw on the Flora, Fauna, Fire interactive produced by The Conversation detailing conservation efforts in the aftermath of bushfires, and The 119, the priority list of species the Bushfire Recovery Expert Panel recommended were in need of immediate intervention.
