Smoke may be seen around Sandy Cape due to planned burn-offs

SMOKE may be seen in and around the Sandy Cape area of Fraser Island as the Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service conducts planned burns between August 15 and 31.

QPWS said the burn-offs were part of the annual hazard reduction/conservation management program for parks and forests.

The aim of these burns is to reduce the volume of forest fuels and to create a mosaic pattern of burnt and unburnt areas within the park, the service said.

QPWS said they would help reduce the intensity of any subsequent wildfires and provide favourable conditions for natural forest regeneration.

For more information, phone QPWS on 4121 1800.
