I studied how mammals responded to the 2009 Black Saturday wildfire. Two years post-fire, I found that mammal species were distributed across the wildfire area, and were not relying on unburnt refuges or gullies for survival. Variation in fire severity did influence several species, which provides valuable insights for management.
