Bushfire Research Fund

Funding research on fire in our environment

[Please note: this is not the public fund that is helping residents affected by by recent bushfires.]

The Bushfire CRC is on the Register of Environmental Organisations with the Australian Government’s Department of Environment, Water, Heritage and the Arts and is accepting donations to further its research program. Donations over $2 are tax deductible.

Your donation will have an impact. With your support these current environmental bushfire research projects will be enhanced:

  • Biodiversity – the impact of fire
  • Fire weather – bushfire affected by temperature, wind, humidity, drought and rain
  • Prescribed fire in the landscape – burning to reduce the bushfire hazard
  • Fire behaviour – bushfire movement over varied landscapes
  • Fire risk in the High Country – alpine vegetation, weather and land management
  • Smoke - plumes and hazes from rural and urban fires
  • Fire in the tropical savannahs of the Top End
  • Die-back of eucalypts in the absence of fire
  • Bushfire arson – finding out who, why, when and where
  • Homes – protection in bushfire zones
