Waru – Fire Management Planning in the Alinytjara Wilurara
Natural Resources Alinytjara Wilurara has developed a draft Fire Management Strategy, in response to the threat from altered and inappropriate fire regimes in the region. A lack of knowledge regarding fire history, traditional burning and species response triggered the plan, which takes the first steps in compiling existing information to support future fire management in the region.
This strategy promotes a ngapartji-ngapartji approach and supports the integration and continuity of traditional knowledge into fire management in the region. However, it is not the intention of the strategy to replace or direct cultural fire management activities undertaken by Anangu (traditional and cultural people of this land) on Anangu lands.
