Western Australian coca (brachial cytokinesis) Respond to deliberately started wildfires by changing their behaviour. This was reported by a working group led by Leticia F. Bove of Murdoch University in Western Australia. The team also wrote for the International Wildland Fire JournalAnimals migrate to specially established fire no-go zones in response to arson and remain there for at least three months after the fires. The team infers this from the behavior of 20 quokkas, who recorded their locomotion profiles over a two-year period. The study shows that animals avoid burned areas for a long period of time, and that fire exclusion areas should be chosen so that they are similarly large.
Aim shot It is part of Australia’s response to bushfiresWhich are formed when a lot of dry vegetation accumulates. Although the fires are still small, they are a potential problem for small animals such as quokkas, as they destroy tall grass and bushes used as hiding places from cats and foxes. For this reason, there are designated non-burning areas to provide shelter and cover for quokkas and other animals. In fact, six of the observed fire-affected quokkas migrated to protected areas during the fire. However, contrary to expectations, they did not return to their lands once the vegetation there was thick enough again – they remained in shelters for several months.
