Catastrophic Fires

Fire is a natural ecological process that both threatens and supports Outback nature. However, across most of the Outback, fires are now more extensive, intensive and less patchy – which poses a greater threat to plants and animals. Across vast areas of the Outback, the intricate patterns and processes of fire management that have been managed over tens of thousands of years by Traditional Owners and their First Nations land management practices have been lost or withdrawn.

With people on Country to manage the land, fire management practices can be increased and out-of-control fires threatening the Outback can be brought under control.
