Cultural Fire Credits Auction

Invest in the first ever Cultural Fire Credit before trading opens to the market

Cultural Fire Credits is an initiative by the Firesticks Alliance and the Aboriginal Carbon Foundation supporting Indigenous-led projects and providing pathways for Aboriginal communities to utilise traditional land management practices to heal, protect and manage Country.
