Life Finds A Way: Pictures After The Australian Bushfires

Nature always recovers, however sometimes we just need to let it heal by itself. The bushfires in Australia kept damaging the territory for several months, however Mother Nature has found a way to recover once more!

Even though a lot of experts suspect that the forest is never going to return to the previous state, residents notice animals returning to the area, and green shoots sprouting all over the place.

A plant ecologist, Michael Doherty, said:

Notwithstanding climate change, we are still seeing the ecosystems recover as we can expect they would. Whether they will continue to recover, is still uncertain.

A lot of the plants in the forests have evolved in order to protect their buds from the fire, therefore they can sprout after being burnt only at the surface, and even use the nutrients which are still present in the ashes.

But, even though this cycle is pretty normal from Australia’s vegetation and it can bounce back from fires, the survivors are facing a lot of challenges!

However, the pictures in the article below of the fresh, green plants emerging from the charred pastures and trees, and the burned earth, have brought a lot of hope to millions of people:
