The Yirralka Rangers (hosted by Laynhapuy Homelands Aboriginal Corporation) operate the NEALFA project in north east Arnhem Land within the Laynhapuy Indigenous Protected Area (IPA).

The NEALFA project uses both aerial prescribed burning (incendiary pellets dropped from helicopters) and ground burning during the early dry season to reduce fuel loads and establish a mosaic of cool burns around and within the project area. The NEALFA project was registered by ALFA (NT) Limited in 2016.
