Australia’s last bushfire season made brutally clear, climate change is shifting everything. The toll on Australia’s unique wildlife has been nothing short of calamitous. Three billion animals were killed or displaced as an area the size of England went up in flames. The fires of Australia’s Black Summer are now recognized as the worst wildlife disaster in modern history. But the tragedy has also set the nation on the path to put meaningful protections in place to conserve its rare and irreplaceable creatures. Following hard-working carers, dedicated scientists and passionate volunteers, we chart the ecological recovery of Australia, through stories of hope, human intervention and resilience. In the year that follows the fires, life slowly returns to the scorched bushlands of Australia. The film provides an urgent message to safeguard our environment and bring about the necessary intervention required to maintain biodiversity on our hotter, more fiery planet, before it is too late.
