About Northern Land Council

The Northern Land Council (NLC) is an independent statutory authority of the Commonwealth. It is responsible for assisting Aboriginal peoples in the Top End of the Northern Territory to acquire and manage their traditional lands and seas.

The South East Arnhem Land Fire Abatement (SEALFA) project operates within the South East Arnhem Land Indigenous Protected Area (SEAL IPA). The SEAL IPA encompasses an area of 18,199 km2 of Aboriginal freehold land within the Arnhem Land and Urapunga Aboriginal Land Trusts.

The SEAL IPA is managed by the Northern Land Council (NLC) which also manages the Numbulwar Numburindi and Yugul Mangi Rangers. These two Indigenous ranger groups implement a coordinated program of strategic early dry season burning throughout the project area annually. They also undertake fire suppression activities in the late dry season. The SEALFA project was registered as an Eligible Offsets Project by ALFA (NT) Limited in 2015.
