An important colony site for H. mirabilis at Wilsons Promontory National Park, Victoria, was burnt accidentally in April 1987. Monitoring over the following 6 flight seasons has shown that the population there has now recovered. The implications of incorporating low intensity control burning for habitat maintenance into conservation management for H. mirahilis are discussed.
