Uluru Fire and Vegetation Management Strategy
This project specifically focused on providing a Fire and Vegetation Management Strategy, which has served as one of the Uluru_Kata Tjuta National Park (UKTNP)'s key planning tools towards achieving effective management of the park's natural and cultural values.
The Fire and Vegetation Management Strategy incorporates both traditional and contemporary fire management techniques to assist the UKTNP to:
- Develop effective approaches to fire hazard reduction within the park
- Undertake an annual burning program and manage and respond to wildfire in a way that incorporates maintenance of biodiversity and Tjukurpa while at the same time ensuring the long term management of park values and assets by reducing the incidence of large scale wildfires within the UKTNP
- Develop best practice fire management using tools and processes which will support knowledge retention and transfer, and promote capacity building in both staff and Anangu
- Access reliable information towards accurate identification, location and management of identified plant communities as they relate to specific cultural and biodiversity values.
