All EGCMN work is partnership based and run on a cooperative basis. We believe working with people is the best way to achieve sustainable long term conservation outcomes.

Fire is a natural ecosystem process in all Australian vegetation communities, but its role, positive or negative, is complex and largely dependant on the ecosystem in question, their historical, current and future fire regimes and what the management aims are.

Just as for human built assists, fire can be an important tool but also a bad master….some systems ‘need’ fire where as others do not.

The EGCMN are involved in number of fire related research projects and maintain a key interest in understanding fire in the context of ecosystem management and human community safety.

As an evidence based organisation we are always keen to learn more and welcome opportunities to collaborate with others.
