RIGHT WAY FIRE πŸ”₯ on Wunambal Gaambera Country.
Traditional Owner Shaoni Waina at Warrana (Eagle Falls) during fire πŸ”₯ work early this month. 
We use fire to look after important plants, animals and cultural places. As set out in our Healthy Country Plan, burning on each graa winya (family area) is led by Traditional Owners and young people are trained and employed. 
Warrana is argu (rocky sandstone) country with walararr (spinifex) and typical sandstone flora. This area is a camping site for our people where traditional hunting of julwun (euro or rock kangaroo) and baagi (rock wallaby) and gathering in the wulo (rainforest) takes place.

RIGHT WAY FIRE πŸ”₯ on Wunambal Gaambera Country
Right-way fire means that burning the land is done according to Wanjina Wunggurr Law with each family leading the burning within their graa winya and burning is carried out in the right season. 
Traditional Owners Jamal Marnga and Flora Williams (pictured) are doing fire work at Pariaba. 
Fire is important to look after and keep our Country healthy. Managing cultural sites and important plants and animals with fire is important. Some species rely on fire to survive. We need to make sure we are burning the right way to care for these plants and animals. 
Before we started right way fire management, hot burn wildfires damaged 27% of Country each year. Now our early season cool burn patches are keeping wildfire to less than 10% of Country each year.

BUSHWALKERS IN WUNAMBAL GAAMBERA COUNTRY 
If you are planning a trip to the Kimberley this year and plan on bushwalking, we have beautiful corridors open for bushwalkers. 
We have 3 bushwalking corridors: Yirinni (Hunter River) Corridor, Lower Mitchell River Corridor and Munurru Corridor. See map in images. 
Our Bushwalking Corridors are open 1 July to 31 October and are closed 1 November to 30 June due to aerial and on-ground early dry season burning; no Bushwalking UVPs are issued for this period.
Make sure you are familiar with our Bushwalker terms and conditions before you head off. Find these on our website: www.wunambalgaambera.org.au
14 day bushwalker UVPs are available for sale on our website. 
There are a few things you must consider when bushwalking in the Kimberley on Wunambal Gaambera Country. 
All bushwalkers must carry and be able to operate a Personal Locator Beacon (PLB) and satellite phone and carry spare batteries.
For safety reasons, do not walk alone.
All bushwalkers must possess adequate first-aid knowledge and carry a comprehensive first-aid kit.
Bushwalkers must obtain adequate insurance in the event of a helicopter rescue. 
If the fire danger is high or high winds prevail, do not light a campfire.
If conditions permit a campfire, clear an area of 3 metres around the fire; keep it small; extinguish with water, then bury with sand.
Never leave a campfire unattended.
Carry sufficient food and water for your route; no soaps or detergents in watercourses and bury human waste 100m from watercourse.
You must register at a Ranger Station before and after your walk (Munurru - King Edward River Campground and Mertens). 
Further information: infouvp@wunambalgaambera.org.au or via our website. 
All bushwalkers must hold a Bushwalker Uunguu Visitor Pass.

Great advice here, how to be safe and keep the country in these corridors healthy, clean and enjoyable for all 🀜🏼

So I can’t even go for a walk In The bush without being subjected to how many bloody rules? πŸ™„

Wunambal Gaambera Fire πŸ”₯ Planning Meeting

Just before Easter, we had our annual fire planning meeting in Kalumburu. Each of our family graas plan out the fire activities for the upcoming season (commencing 13th April) on Wunambal Gaambera Country. We also looked over fire scars from previous seasons.

Wunambal Gaambera Aboriginal Corporation would like to advise that prescribed burning will commence on the 13th April and continue until the 30th June, conducted in accordance with an annual fire plan.

Fire information is provided on our website ( ), including fire notices and information for visitors.
