Large, out of control fires can have a damaging impact on native plants, animals, significant sites and pastoral production.
TNRM supports coordinated fire management to protect biodiversity, maximise production and abate greenhouse gas emissions.
FIRE MANAGEMENT IN THE WESTERN TOP END
A collaborative fire management plan has been put in place for the Western Top End; a complex area home to a variety of stakeholders with different land tenures and ways of using the land. This plan, created following extensive engagement, set up a structure for planning and logistics, facilitating communication between ranger groups and pastoral neighbours; training and support for aerial burning and collecting data.
