Helping Wildlife After Fires

This article focuses on Australian cities, but includes advice that generalizes elsewhere: plant native species especially fire-suppressing ones, provide a water source, and leave some ground litter for cover.  You can minimize fire risks by keeping ground litter or brushy cover in patches rather than large areas, and locating them away from buildings.

Also, do everything you can to protect territory for wildlife. The more space they have, the less devastating it is when some of that burns.  This is one case when bigger is always better.
