The booklet has wide-ranging views on fire
management in Australia's north
Fire on the Savannas: Voices from the Landscape, the TS-CRC's
booklet on the experiences and opinions of some of the north's fire
managers is now in print. The genesis for the booklet were
interviews conducted at the TS-CRC's fire management workshop held
in March this year. This workshop brought together pastoralists,
indigenous land managers, scientists, conservationists, tour
operators, miners and the military.
The booklet is not an authoritative text on fire management, but
a fascinating account of viewpoints to fire management in the
north, illustrating where these views diverge and meet. Proceedings
of the workshop are also now in print.
The proceedings of another fire management workshop, held in the
remote Aboriginal community of Kalumburu in the North Kimberley
region of Western Australia are also now in print. This earlier
workshop was held over 10 days in 1997 and addressed a range of
regional fire management issues.
