After fire comes recovery: Life in a farm dam
An inspiring story from a farm near Batlow NSW.
This farm near Batlow burnt badly in the bushfires of January 2020. Heavy rain followed on the bare, burnt earth, and farmer David Waters was worried that his dam – and the family of platypus that lived there – would suffer. But the vegetation around the dam helped protect it from erosion and sediment, so it is once again a refuge for wildlife.
