Draft Fire Management Plan - Reserves of the Onkaparinga Valley

on .

The Draft Fire Management Plan states that it "defines objectives for ecological fire management and the protection of life and property, particularly in relation to visitors and adjacent landholders."

While the Plan provides comprehensive detail for the protection of life and property, the Society believes that it has failed to adequately cover some of the over arching principles necessary for the ecological fire management of public reserves that are dedicated to the conservation and protection of native species, populations, communities and habitats. The Society has provided the following specific comments to help to improve the scientific credibility and ecological focus of this document.
