Primary topic: Managing biodiversity
CSIRO has partnered the Dhimurru Aboriginal Corporation to establish a biodiversity monitoring program in relation to fire within the Dhimurru Indigenous Protected Area in north-east Arnhem Land in the Northern Territory.
Primary topic: Fire ecology
Indigenous ecological knowledge has been used in powerful combination with western science to enhance the biodiversity and cultural values of wetlands in Kakadu National Park in Australia's Northern Territory.
Tiwi Islanders and CSIRO are working together to examine the biophysical and economic potential of fire management for Greenhouse gas abatement on the Tiwi Islands, as a basis for possible livelihood opportunities for Tiwi people.
The West Arnhem Land Fire Abatement project uses traditional fire management practices and scientific knowledge to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
