Using ecological thresholds to measure biodiversity improvements from cultural burning in the North Kimberley

Project: Research

Project Details

Description

This project will scale an innovative method called Ecological Performance Thresholds Analysis (EPTA) developed in Arnhem Land in the N.T. 1,2 and successfully piloted in a WWF-Au project with Wunambal Gaambera Aboriginal Corporation in the North Kimberley (funded by a Lotterywest grant to WWF-Au). The upscaling of this project across 134,200 km2 in the North Kimberley will enable North Kimberley Fire Abatement Project (NKFAP) savanna carbon projects to measure and demonstrate biodiversity improvements from cultural fire management. This kind of evidence can influence market signals for NKFAP to pursue biodiversity co-benefit premiums in the future. This sustainable financing model will facilitate long-term cultural fire management in the North Kimberley bioregion.
