Area burned - Jasper
Forest fires can provide positive effects on forest ecosystems, such as controlling the spread of detrimental insects, maintaining diverse habitats, and the recycling of nutrients across landscapes. Fire management in Jasper National Park aims to maintain these natural processes, and includes controlled burns to also reduce the risk of future wildfires that may threaten the Park and community assets. Data is collected using satellite imagery and provide some of the necessary information needed to prepare park-specific plans for conservation and recovery activities.
