Bushfires and Habitat Loss

This article reveals how some species have lost most or all of their habitat to recent bushfires. 

I have not seen similar reports about megafires on the West Coast of America, but I suspect similar problems -- a big fire can easily overrun a whole species that has a small range.  :(  This needs more coverage in order to protect any remaining habitat.  Also, scientists need to be on the bounce to measure post-fire populations and quickly boost whelmed species up the protection ladder.
