Fire regimes and other disturbances, such as habitat modification and introduced predators, have compromised the ability for many animals to recover, survive, and persist post-fire. Conservation practitioners and managers implement various post-fire management actions to assist with fauna recovery. We undertook an online survey to gauge the range of actions that are implemented, specifically following wildfire, and their effectiveness in achieving fauna conservation and recovery.
