Each year large areas of the Territory bush are devastated by bushfire destroying flora and fauna and threatening homes and businesses. Scientific research by the CSIRO has identified that this annual destruction of our bush by fire will have a long term negative effect on the top end biodiversity.

Bushfire arson is also costly to the community with the loss of property, cost of fire fighting resources and the disruption of business due to the need for volunteer fire fighters to be away from work.

Many of these fires are deliberately lit by bushfire arsonists. We need the help of the public to detect and assist with the apprehension of these arsonists.

Report suspicious behaviour and fire lighting. Bushfire arson is a crime.
