As much of the planet's life systems are lost, we urgently need innovative ways of looking after the iconic landscapes and extraordinary biodiversity of Australia. Contemporary conservation principles, together with Indigenous ecological knowledge and the expertise of Indigenous Traditional Owners are creating new ways for addressing the cluster of environmental issues facing our ancient continent. Indigenous conservation is an exciting part of WildCountry, and one that is generating social, economic and environmental returns.

Last weekend, more than 20,000 people attended Concert for the Kimberley in Perth, Western Australia. Headline acts John Butler, Missy Higgins, and Ball Park Music generously gave their time to the cause, and the turn out was sensational.
The Simpson Desert is truly spectacular. We have an opportunity to create one of the largest biodiversity corridors in the world.
