Fire as a Conservation Method

Forests and fire are naturally intertwined, and in many cases healthy forests benefit from natural fire regimes.

But fire is behaving differently than it has historically, mostly due to human intervention. Changes in how and where fires burn threaten our economy and safety, and can undo decades of progress in conservation and sustainable development.

The Nature Conservancy works to maintain fire’s role where it benefits people and nature, and keep fire out of places where it is destructive.
