What do WILD cats and WILD fires have in common?  Nothing! But one does help the other to survive. Learn how in the latest issue of EOKids, Watching Wildfires from Space. In this issue, EO Kids looks at how satellites observe and track fires (and what they leave behind) across the world.  Plus, create a burn scar “Data Viz” flip book and see the regrowth after the massive fires of 1988 in Yellowstone National Park.

At EO Kids we are committed to making Earth science fun and engaging. Come explore our Earth with us.
