Wildfires are often described as "catastrophic" and "devastating", and this is true when human life and property are lost. But for many birds, other wildlife, and plants, wildfire is necessary. Fire is a vital ecosystem process in the Sierra Nevada, essential to biodiversity and nature's health. Point Blue's Sierra Nevada scientists are guiding land managers to help resolve the conflict between human needs and the need for fire to sustain healthy ecosystems.
