Fire management practices
DBCA acknowledges that fire has been, and continues to be, an important part of the physical and spiritual wellbeing of Aboriginal people. While contemporary burning practises may differ from cultural burning practices, increasing engagement between Traditional Owners and other land managers is building an understanding of the differences, and is providing opportunities to improve fire management practices through a partnership approach.
