Meet Burner Bob®
Burner Bob® is a bobwhite quail who lives in the longleaf forest with other animal friends such as gopher tortoises and red-cockaded woodpeckers. He devotes his life to explaining to people that the longleaf forest with its many plants and animals has evolved over time to being burned on a regular basis. The forests need fire to survive and thrive. He goes about the land telling the story and showing people how to control burn safely.
Burner Bob® and The Longleaf Alliance support regular prescribed burns to create healthy habitats for the plants and animals that call the longleaf ecosystem home.
