How our iconic Natural Values respond to fire

​​It is important to understand the impact of the 2019 fires on our iconic natural values within the area of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. The Department has produced summaries of our scientific understanding of how a range of outstanding universal values (OUVs) that were key to the listing of our wilderness as a World Heritage Area, respond to fire, their sensitivity and their ability to recover.

Updates on our impact assessment process for these iconic natural values are available on the Parks & Wildlife Service website.
