A strategic fit
The purchase of Ediegarrup Reserve fitted perfectly with ambitions in our 2030 strategy.
The Southwest Australia Global Biodiversity Hotspot is one of 36 biodiversity hotspots, “where exceptional concentrations of endemic species are undergoing exceptional loss of habitat”.
This landscape is one of the oldest on the planet, and without disturbance from glaciers or volcanoes for over 200 million years, the region has evolved an exceptionally high floristic diversity, with an estimated 7,380 vascular plant species, of which 49% are endemic.
Our aim in the Fitz-Stirling landscape is to build functioning, biodiverse corridors, that allow native species to move through fragmented areas of native bush.
As the majority of remnant bushland has been acquired, our focus is on strategically acquiring cleared agricultural land that can be restored and is positioned to connect up existing habitat.
