As we're burning the Country, we're healing it. - Uncle Warren Foster

 

 

Join us in a WWF-Australia first as we mark National Sorry Day and National Reconcilliation week with this inspiring video featuring Bega LALC Ranger Chris Hoskins and Firesticks' Knowledge Holder Uncle Warren Foster.

 

 

The environmental mismanagement of traditional lands is two and a half centuries old, and a consequence of Aboriginal dispossession. In this video, we listen to the knowledge of these vital voices in Indigenous conservation, and learn how cultural burning returns much more than traditional bushfire prevention to Country.
