Pursuing and Communicating Fire Science Across Pacific Islands

Our goal is to facilitate the pursuit of the best available Pacific Island wildfire science and to translate and communicate that research to those affected by fire. We first work with fire practitioners to identify the gaps in fire science and then help researchers to fill those needs. We communicate and exchange new and relevant fire science through events (field tours, workshops and seminars) and multi-media (fact sheets, research summaries, interviews, maps and tools).
