The vision of the Aboriginal carbon foundation is to catalyse life-changing, community prosperity through carbon farming.
The main method used is a return to traditional ways of burning off savanna.
Savanna burning is about reducing emissions from fire by burning in the early dry season when fires are cooler and patchy.
Rowen Foley talks about pioneering this indigenous carbon credit scheme that values culture and 100% indigenous to indigenous
ways of working; where there is no white guy checking on things.
