This project extended the coverage of traditional fire management practices across Cape York Peninsula, both during this activity and beyond the project timeframe. The project contributed to the Caring for Our Country target ' to expand traditional fire management regimes across at least 200 00 sq km's of northern Australian savannas by 2013. 

An important study focused on the preservation of land in order to protect the habitat of the Australian Native Bee in Cape York, North Queensland. Kuku-Thaypan Elder Tommy George works with scientists to study the native bee, comparing knowledge on the species type and on how they are managed in the environment.
