    Abstract

    EcoFire is a strategic regional prescribed burning programme covering 5 million hectares of the Kimberley, Western Australia. It is based on a unique partnership of landholders, private conservation and government agencies. The project is causing a shift from regular, extensive, uncontrolled fires in the mid-to-late dry season, to early dry season fires that are smaller and less intense, thus improving habitat quality and the availability of unburnt vegetation across the landscape.
