Cattle are an effective tool to reduce bushfire risk, and can be integrated into regulated vegetation regeneration carbon projects to achieve this. Most of the 2019/2020 Australian bushfires occurred in National Parks and were so extreme due to vegetation mismanagement and extreme climate change weather patterns. If livestock are used in a more regenerative manner, they can be effective at reducing longer term bushfire risk and fire intensity through reducing excessive biomass. This is particularly the case on some of our carbon projects up in far North Queensland where the fire risk to biodiversity and vegetation is higher than other areas.
