Can indigenous knowledge stop Australia from burning? We always think we can leave nature alone and she will be healthy and flourishing. Well, in my environmental studies I gained other knowledge.
People need nature to supply oxygen, drinking water, and food. But nature also needs people. Mindful collaboration works best. The prevention of Austrian bushfires is a great example.
“Before colonization, Indigenous Australians used fire not only to control the buildup of leaf litter and other fuel but also to maintain ecosystems and promote healthy growth.” — Brooke Boland
