About the Project

This project involves the strategic and planned burning of savanna areas during the early dry season to reduce the risk of late dry season wild fires. Prescribed burning is intended to break-up country, creating a patchwork of fuel loads of different ages. This limits the spread of any wildfires later in the year (they go out, or can be put out, when they reach country which was burnt in prescribed operations) and, importantly, ensures that the landscape contains patches of vegetation that is old growth (which many animals need for food and shelter).


Project Co-Benefits

Co-benefits include:
1) Local indigenous employment
2) Reducing the negative impact of wildfires
3) Increasing the extent of “old growth” vegetation and dispersing it more evenly across the landscape
