Indigenous Rangers - West Arnhem Plateau

Our Way

Added by RangerTube

Description The Warddeken Indigenous Rangers of West Arnhem Land, Bush Heritage and scientists have joined forces to survey the little-known An-binik jungles of west Arnhem Land. The knowledge they gain will help the rangers to protect the fragile ecosystem from wildfire. During the 2014 dry season the rangers, supported by Bush Heritage, implemented a fire project as part of their Healthy Country Plan. They created a mosaic of burnt and unburnt patches across the landscape to help prevent run-away hot fires – a key threat to the plateau and the an-binik forests.
