Professor Ross Bradstock presents
The Science of Bushfire Risk
Livestream: https://chiefscientist.mediahouse.com.au/breakfast-seminar-series/view/senior-professor-ross-bradstock

Eastern Australia has just experienced the largest fire season in its recorded history. Can science help us to understand how, when and why fire seasons like this occur and how we can deal with them to meet the future challenges of a rapidly changing world?

Professor Ross Bradstock is Director of the Centre for Environmental Risk Management of Bushfires and the NSW Bushfire Risk Management Research Hub. In this seminar, Ross will illustrate the complex nature of research into bushfire risk and management, addressing the following questions:
• To what degree can we predict how a fire season will unfold?
• How much can risk to lives and property be mitigated, and at what cost?
• Are our biota destroyed by fires?
• What does the future hold?

Join Professor Ross Bradstock for The Science of Bushfire Risk, as he outlines our current scientific knowledge, how it can inform difficult policy decisions and empower individuals and communities to adapt to a more flammable future.
