Practical fuel-reduction tip to prevent bushfires




News Weekly, December 7, 2013

Sir,

The recent bushfires in New South Wales have prompted belated regrets there about the failure of the state fire authorities to conduct sufficient fuel-reduction burn-offs beforehand to prevent this catastrophe.

In light of this, what steps are being taken to re-introduce cattle-grazing in Victoria’s alpine high country?

It was originally banned in 2005 by Victoria’s Steve Bracks Labor government, then briefly re-introduced, as a limited trial, in 2011 by the Baillieu Liberal government until the then federal Labor Environment Minister, Tony Burke, intervened to overrule Victoria (see News Weekly, May 28, 2011).

Now that we have had a change of federal government, one would hope that the idea will be explored again.

Emidio J. Restall,
Werribee, Vic.
