When selecting the area we’re asking you to look at, we endeavour to control for habitat loss caused by bushfires. However, some images of bushfires might have snuck through. Check out the help section for guidance on telling the difference between clearing by people, and bushfires.

Our expert team has taken steps to avoid showing any satellite imagery with clouds obscuring the landscape, but in some cases it can’t be helped. Just click the squares where you see clearing, and don’t worry about the land that you can’t see.

Where there’s clouds, there’s shadows. Sometimes shadows can look like a burned or cleared patch. If there are clouds around, check if the shadows seem to correspond with any of the clouds.
