Location: Wilson's Promontory National Park, Victoria, Australia


The northern section of Wilson's Promontory National Park has been burned repeatedly in catastrophic bushfires. With climate change, what was a once-in-fifty-year activity has become a biennial assault on the landscape. These Australian grass trees had been burned to the ground, then the delicate re-growth was hit again two years later. Nature struggles to cope with the changes wrought by man's abuse of the planet.
