The purpose of this project is to explore the application of traditional fire management integrated in a carbon trade framework to the Tsilhqot’in title lands and Dasiqox Tribal Park area, in central British Columbia. Generating revenue to prevent carbon emissions from devastating late season fires, estimated at many thousands of tonnes, could provide important income to Tsilhqot’in members and support conservation and restoration efforts on their lands.
