This special first-edition of the new-look bushtracks is dedicated to the countrywide effort being undertaken on our reserves to protect vital Australian species from extinction.
- Western Brush Wallabies return
The return of the poorly-studied Western Brush Wallaby (known as the Black-gloved Wallaby or Kwoora) to 420 hectares of carefully revegetated land on our Monjebup North Reserve shows our work is paying off.
- From the CEO
“Thousands of plants and animals, both common and threatened, are suffering population declines as their habitats shrink… If we are to reverse, or at least halt this decline, we need to be smarter about our approach to conservation.”
- Bringing back the Bilby
Today, Aboriginal people own or manage about 70 percent of the Bilby’s remaining range, and groups such as the Birriliburu Rangers are at the centre of the species’ recovery plan.
- Nursing our natives
A new state-of-the-art nursery at Scottsdale Reserve will generate up to 10,000 native plants a year with almost no environmental footprint, thanks to solar technology, wetland filtration and a waste water recycling system.
- Orchid rescue
From guided wildflower trips in Victoria, to a tour along the banks of the Murrumbidgee River in New South Wales, there are plenty of opportunities to get out and about on our reserves this Spring.
- Thank you
Thanks to the many supporters who have generously donated to our work.
