Part 6:  Firewise in Fynbos 



The Voluntary FireWise Communities project supports communities in living with wildfire and encourages neighbours to work together and take action now to prevent losses. By supporting firefighters, landowners, NGOs and local authorities to implement IFM practices and to anticipate the impacts of climate change on wildfires, the project ensures that development losses from wildfires will be minimized while this unique biome and floral kingdom serves as a reservoir of unique, beautiful, important species for the planet.
