Poor Wilsons Promontory

Containing the largest coastal wilderness area in Victoria, but massively scarred by a 700 hectare fire in 2005 due to a prescribed burn that escaped (again).

Now again, just four years hence, the Prom is suffering a massive blaze out to 11,000 hectares, having burned from coast to coast across the more remote northern section of the Promontory.

No lives, no homes so no priority!


Well said, Tigerquoll. Please keep writing about this. It is a hard subject - the autistic disregard for the natural world by our increasingly vulnerable population. DSE shows contempt for our wildlife. We need another department that cares about them.
