Greenhouse gases emitted from savanna fires average 3% of Australia’s emissions. By collaborating, Traditional Owners and Aboriginal rangers implement controlled, cooler fires in the early dry season, reducing greenhouse gas emissions compared to the intense, uncontrolled fires that arise later when the land is dry.
When savanna grasslands are burned in a controlled manner, it can stimulate the growth of new grasses and other vegetation, which in turn provides food and habitat for a wide range of local species. Cool burning can also help to control the spread of invasive species, reduces the risk of wildfire, and improves the overall health and resilience of the ecosystem.
