Watch this video to learn about cultural burning.
Cultural burning is a cultural fire practice used by First Nations people to improve the health of Country and its people. It has been used for over 60,000 years to manage land, plants and animals.
Reviving ancient practises such as cultural burning is essential for land management techniques to manage the risk of bushfires which is worsening because of climate change.
