An indigenous approach to managing bushfires
The indigenous approach is to manage the landscape with so-called “cool, slow” controlled burns often conducted at night. They’re designed to reduce dangerous fuel loads of scrub and fallen timber on forest floors, and incrementally tackle large tracts of land with multiple small-scale burns. Such an approach is more labor intensive and takes longer. But the lower intensity and slow progress of the fire gives animals chance to escape and protects the forest canopy.https://amp-insurancejournal-com.cdn.ampproject.org/c/s/amp.insurancejournal.com/news/international/2019/12/17/551546.htm
