In late October 2018 a fire broke out on the slopes of the Outeniqua mountains. The results were devastating. Thousands of hectares of fynbos habitat, commercial timber plantations, historical buildings and many homes burnt to the ground. The effect on the area's wildlife must have been equally disastrous, but no one know the numbers. Sadly, there was also loss of human life. 8 People tragically died because of the fires.
