Julie Manning started this petition to All Decision Makers (Federal, State and Local Governing Bodies)

This latest catastrophic fire event happened through gross land mis-management since the time of European settlement. Our own first nation people knew then and continue to know now, how to care for the fire sensitive nature of Australian bushland in a responsible and humane way. Cool burns reduce the impact of total destruction that these current catastrophic hot fire storm events deliver. Lives and habitat of our Human and Animal ecosystems are saved from total destruction through patchwork cool burns that indigenous land preservation techniques have demonstrated. 

Instead of treating our indigenous guardians with dis-regard and appalling dis-respect, we should be employing their presence Australia wide as cherished custodians of our fragile land. This is already happening in regional Australia but more action is needed to save us from having to witness our beloved Animals face possible extinction through catastrophic fire events in the future. 

All principle and secondary Australian governing bodies cannot afford to stay ignorant any longer. We have always known about fire threats to our survival and have ignored every sign from past events. I lived through Black Saturday when eastern Victoria erupted in flames delivered in wildfires impossible to control. We woke up on our first morning in a new house to a searing tangerine sky. Still emptying out our old house, both homes faced the flames and would have been consumed without the vigilant efforts from incredible firies.

Here we are again 11 years later, waking up on the eastern coast of Australia to record dry, un-managed forests, suffocating smoke and searing tangerine skies.
