Stanwell Corporation Ltd – Hazard reduction burning program

Hazard Reduction

Biotropica’s field services unit has been conducting hazard reduction burning in the Ravenshoe area on behalf of Stanwell Corporation Ltd, operators of the Barron Gorge and Kareeya hydro-electricity power stations.  Working in conjunction with the North and South Millstream Rural Fire Brigades, Biotropica staff completed prescribed burns in a number of areas including rural residential sites. Our burns were consistent with recommendations developed in Property Management Plans completed by Biotropica in 2010 to guide management of Stanwell lands throughout north Qld. Using our extensive ecosystem management skills, field experience and equipment, our crew achieved a high quality ecological outcome with zero incidents.
