CULTURAL ECOLOGICAL BURNING
Preparing for fire season is so important across Australia, the right preparation can help protect our assets, people, flora and fauna from the Australian summer and potential fire threats. Fire holds an important place in Australian land management heritage, our ancestors used fire to care for the country. Cultural Burning involves the application of culturally informed knowledge and ecologically sensitive techniques in the use of fire that are appropriate for the diverse range of landscapes and ecosystems that exist in Australia. Utilising these traditional methods we are able to protect the land through a gentle and slow burn which helps with invasive weed control and preservation of native species of plants which require the application of heat and or smoke to germinate the seeds and many native and endangered species which can avoid or survive a slow gentle fire.
These fires can be used to protect assets and prepare for fire seasons support the revegetation of damaged areas and encourage native growth.
ASSESSMENT & PLANNING
Protecting our culture is an important part of Barapa Land & Water. Our team are able to work with you on your development to review the impacts on Aboriginal objects and places through the development of environmental and heritage assessments ensuring the protection of ‘Aboriginal cultural places, values and customs’. We will work with you on the development of a Cultural Heritage Management Plan (CHMP) which outlines measures to be taken before, during and after an activity in order to manage and protect Aboriginal cultural heritage in the area where your project is being undertaken.
PEST & WEED CONTROL
Australia is home to a wide variety of imported pests such as foxes, pigs, and rabbits which impacts negatively on plants and soils which can potentially lead to erosion. This is also applicable to weeds which are impacting native species of fauna in the landscape. Appropriate control of pests and weeds is necessary to care for and protect cultural sites and important plants and animals’ habitat. Our experienced team are ready to be engaged to remove unwanted pests and weeds.
Our team’s rich knowledge and history in the region enables them to be the right partner for land revegetation projects. Developing regeneration plans and planting native species back in an area improves the quality and productivity of the land. Re-establishing the natural native habitat creates flourishing habitat to attract native wildlife.
