Managing fire for Yams

This was a bit of a whirlwind trip, I had to gather footage to make three videos and then have all the videos complete in just over a month for the Worlds Parks Congress. This was one of the videos that was shown as part of a research project presented at the World Parks Congress. What was really interesting about this whole experience though was how people relate to fire. Scientists and the APN rangers had a completely different relationship to fire. The scientists in this case took the time understand fire management from the rangers perspective and wullah this led to some very interesting findings. To me this research project is a really good example of how when two knowledge systems work together, it can lead to much better results for everybody.
