Forest Fire Damage

According to the Regional Bureau of Statistics, ninety-four forest fires consumed 1,570 hectares of land, including 658 hectares of forest in 2017.  However, despite fewer fires in 2016 (54), the resulting damage was far more significant, with a total of 6,270 hectares of land destroyed, despite it being a wetter year.

The Bureau has also released figures showing that average temperatures are also increasing year on year.
