Fire Management

Jabalbina Rangers are responsible for managing the Eastern Kuku Yalanji Indigenous Protected Area between Port Douglas and Cooktown.

Fire is a critical management tool for Eastern Kuku Yalanji bubu (land), but many areas have not been managed well over recent years.

Eastern Kuku Yalanji Bama (people) are keen for Jabalbina rangers to restore traditional burning practices to improve the health of Country.
