The Clean Energy Regulator has approved a savanna burning regime at Fish River under the Carbon Farming Initiative.
The methodology reduces total greenhouse gas emissions from the property, benefiting the environment and potentially earning an income stream from carbon credits for Traditional Owners.
By using methods that draw on Indigenous pattern burning and science, the area of land that had been historically burnt each year by wildfires has been reduced from 69% to 3% of the property.
