Rachael Cavanagh, Community Programs & Stakeholder Engagement Manager at Firesticks Alliance Indigenous Corporation, talking about Indigenous cultural burning can provide solutions to shocking state of the environment report. The State of the Environment report 2022 released this week found all areas of the nation are in a poor and deteriorating state. Traditional Indigenous cultural burning can provide an answer to number of the horrific results in the Report.
