Cultural Burning in Travelling Stock Routes

Project Details

OzArk is working with the Central West Local Land Services (CW LLS) to assess the impact of cultural burning in travelling stock routes. Prior to burning commencing, and in conjunction with local Aboriginal representatives, OzArk Archaeologists carried out an Aboriginal archaeological assessment. Seven Aboriginal sites were identified and management recommendations provided.

OzArk Ecologists also worked with CW LLS staff before burning to determine baseline ecological data. Post-burn assessment is undertaken to be able to analyse data and determine the ecological impact of cultural burns. This is an on-going project with regular monitoring important to ensure replication and robust data analysis. CW LLS hope to apply the results across other travelling stock routes.
