Every year, wildfire impacts thousands of hectares of Cape York affecting livelihoods, plants, animals and delicate ecosystems. There are 33 savanna burning projects across Cape York, creating a new industry for Cape York’s land managers.
People and Partnerships are integral to successful natural resource management on Cape York. The summer edition of the newsletter (Issue 25) showcases the importance of partnerships, and highlights some of the great work that has taken place on Cape York in 2015.
