Using a remote camera placed strategically, Into Nature Films documents the power of fire in Florida Dry Prairie as part of an upcoming production. To know Florida ecosystems well, one must understand fire. Fire is essential to nature conservation stories in Florida. Fire is necessary. Fire is beautiful. Fire is beneficial. Palmetto will survive the fire by resprouting. We see this in our work filming fire in Florida.
We have also learned…In an instant, fire becomes unforgiving. Flames consume everything in its’ path…including our remote GoPro camera deployed in a firebreak. Wind driven fire in a palmetto patch reaches temperatures that few can survive. When fire managers use fire, they must be careful. So much can be lost in an instant. Animals can be trapped in chaotic ignition patterns.
