About the Project

The Yirralka Rangers (hosted by Laynhapuy Homelands Aboriginal Corporation) operate the NEALFA project in north east Arnhem Land within the Laynhapuy Indigenous Protected Area (IPA). The NEALFA project uses both aerial prescribed burning (incendiary pellets dropped from helicopters) and ground burning during the early dry season to reduce fuel loads and establish a mosaic of cool burns around and within the project area. The NEALFA project was registered by ALFA (NT) Limited in 2016.


Project Co-Benefits

ALFA (NT) Limited, is a not-for-profit company owned exclusively by Aboriginal people with custodial responsibility for those parts of Arnhem Land under active bushfire management. The company was created by Landowners and the Indigenous ranger groups operating the fire projects in Arnhem Land to support Indigenous land management with funding generated through the sale of Australian Carbon Credit Units. The purchase of ALFA generated ACCUs supports Aboriginal people in returning to, remaining on and managing their country, the protection of biodiversity, the preservation and transfer of knowledge, the maintenance of Aboriginal languages and the wellbeing of traditional custodians.
