WildCountry is the Wilderness Society's vision for the long-term health of the Australian continent. The WildCountry Vision is based on sound scientific findings that identify what nature needs to survive and prosper. It drives our campaigns and is applicable throughout landscape protection and restoration projects. WildCountry clearly shows the unique natural processes that drive our landscapes operate over great distances and long periods. This means we need to think big in planning future nature conservation in Australia.

The planet and its people are the poorer for losing a leading light in the Tasmanian and Australian conservation movement. Helen Gee is a founding member of the Wilderness Society and rightly recognised for service to the environment on the Tasmanian Honour Roll of Women.
The Simpson Desert is truly spectacular. We have an opportunity to create one of the largest biodiversity corridors in the world.
Each year, the Wilderness Society presents the Environment Award for Children's Literature as a way to promote responsibility for wilderness in tomorrow's leaders. We are pleased to announce the shortlisted books for the 2012 award.
Ngadju Traditional Owners in the Great Western Woodlands want to put in place a program which aims to develop and enrich the Indigenous fire practises of the region and provide land and fire management for the safety and benefit of the wider community.
