Fire management at Yookamurra

While bushfires are rare in the mallee habitat at Yookamurra, late summer bushfires have the potential to spread quickly and devastate mallee environments.

Fire management at Yookamurra focuses on prevention of late summer bushfires and protecting assets including infrastructure and the feral-proof fence. Prescribed burning may be undertaken, as appropriate, to reduce fuel and to assist in managing particular weeds.
