Aw, crap: fire threatens important national park on Reunion Island

Wildfire threatens Reunion Island national park, affecting vistas and flora and fauna of inestimable value

Very few articles findable on this. It doesn't sound good. Actually, it never does sound good when valuable and unique ecosystems are threatened with immolation. La Reunion is a beautiful island, with a volcano, somewhat akin to Hawaii, with a burgeoning population. Since island ecosystems are usually unique, any loss to them hurts the worldwide biodiversity pool.
