The Wilinggin Fire Project is located on the Wilinggin Indigenous Protected Area in the Kimberley in Northern WA. It is owned and managed by the Traditional Owners of the land.

The project uses Indigenous traditional knowledge and modern scientific practices to conduct early dry season burns which reduce the amount of greenhouse gas emissions released into the atmosphere from unmanaged wildfires in the late dry season.

Traditional Owners are trained and employed as fire specialists and rangers. Funds from the sale of carbon credits are reinvested into ongoing fire management operations.
