About the Image
Our upland habitat researchers are involved in many habitat restoration projects across the state, and one of the most important components of habitat research and restoration is prescribed burning. Prescribed fire is an important habitat management tool; the FWC uses safe, controlled techniques to improve and maintain habitats for native plants and wildlife. In this photo, an FWC biologist conducts a prescribed burn at Andrews Wildlife Management Area.
