1 year on from the 2019/20 Bushfires and Australia’s National Parks are rising from the ashes. In this episode, Lottie Dalziel speaks with Ian Darbyshire, CEO of the Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife who not only have announced their plan to plant one million trees over the next five years but are working with communities to grow native flora and nurture animal species around Australia.
Focused on national parks, for Ian, sustainability is all about making sure that Australia's very unusual flora and fauna is around for future sheets of generations to enjoy. Creating wildlife corridors and working with private land holders around parks to create safe corridors and safe connectivity for our wildlife to make sure we have enough of those in the future.
The foundation of the national parks and wildlife mission is all about growing parks and saving species. And that's exactly what they've been doing that for over 50 years. After the bushfires of 2019/20, Ian guides us through the national emergency response that they created, delving into it's different implications across states.
