Why teach all Australian kids about cultural burning?

Teaching Australian children about cultural burning provides a great opportunity to:

  • show ways to lessen the fear about fire after a catastrophic bushfire season
  • focus on a specific area of scientific knowledge in Aboriginal culture
  • investigate techniques that have been used in the Australian landscape for thousands of years
  • consider the economic opportunities for land management using fire.
