But many indigenous and environmental groups increasingly feel too much prevention burning is damaging biodiversity. CSIRO and Charles Darwin University scientists have been carrying out a controlled burning project to determine whether that’s true, and how to best balance the sometimes competing needs to protect communities, biodiversity and carbon.
