Across the West, natural burn patterns are being encouraged as a cost-saving measure. A startup is connecting people of African descent around the world to forests in Africa, and planting trees in their honor to combat deforestation. In Australia, a partnership between Indigenous ranger groups and a nonprofit are conserving rainforests through fire management and revegetation. And in Indonesia, researchers are using acoustic monitoring to track illegal logging in forests.
