Simon Cherriman said the deaths of the unborn eaglets, who fell from their nest and died before they had a chance to hatch, was a tragic outcome in Mt Helena which could have been prevented.
�Fire management practices in our forests need to improve so they don�t have the same outcome as the Parkerville bushfires in 2014,� he said.
�As well as countless other native animals and highly important habitat trees which are hundreds of years old, the death of these eagles is a clear example of why we need to place emphasis on taking a community approach to fuel-load reduction.
�Pressure on authorities to conduct burning activities without proper planning or impact minimisation has left two devastated birds of prey circling their nest site, screaming for their loss.�
He was concerned the recent prescribed burn was �yet another example of humanity�s hypocrisy and inability to be consistent with its own supposed laws�.
�If we are serious about existing legislation to protect wildlife and animal welfare, then we as a society must act to ensure this legislation is adhered to.�
Mr Cherriman said he was devastated when he discovered the prescribed burn reached 25m into the forest canopy in Mt Helena, killing the eaglets when they fell to the burning understory.
�Research has shown that eagle productivity in WA can be very low, and possibly only 10 per cent of birds which fledge from their nest will survive to adulthood,� he said.
�I�m not blaming the department,� he said.
�They are doing their best.�
