Our forests and peatlands are vital for the global climate and biodiversity hotspots. Devastating wildfires are destroying ecosystems worldwide now that natural fire regimes and landscapes are altered by human activities.

This map provides a snapshot of communities suffering from and fighting with wildfires from all over the world. Raging on all of the continents except Antarctica, across landscapes and with different origin, fires are nevertheless a common threat for people telling these stories.
