In January 2020, wildfires burnt over 200,000 hectares of Kangaroo Island, and had a significant impact on native wildlife and habitats, including threatened species. An agreement was made between the Australian Government, the Threatened Species Recovery Hub, the South Australian Government, and the Kangaroo Island Natural Resources Management Board, to host an expert workshop on the recovery of Kangaroo Island’s Wildlife and Habitats from these fires. The purpose of this workshop was to bring together local, state and national expertise and decision-makers, and document the best available evidence to inform a Fire Recovery Plan for Kangaroo Island’s wildlife and habitats. A range of priority recovery actions and knowledge gaps were identified in this workshop, the details of which are presented in this report.
