Revisiting The Wildfires in the Amazon and Conservation in Brazil

This week, we're bringing you an archive episode from August 2019, where we discussed the wildfires in the Amazonian rainforest and Terra Informer Elizabeth Dowdell spoke with interdisciplinary researcher Cristiana Seixas about her work on socio-ecological systems and protecting the environment in Brazil.

The devastating bushfires in Australia have been front and center in the news this month, with a total area of around 8.4 million hectares burned as of the 6th of January. The images of smoke plumes visible from space and eerie orange skies reminded us here at Terra Informa of the wildfires in the Amazonian rainforest this past summer. So, this week we are revisiting an archive episode from August 2019, where we discussed the state of the wildfires and Terra Informer Elizabeth Dowdell interviewed interdisciplinary scholar Cristiana Seixas about her work on socio-ecological systems and protecting the environment in Brazil.
