The Nature Conservancy (TNC) and Australia Wildlife Conservancy (AWC) have purchased the Kalamurina Ranch, which provides a critical 1.65 million acre corridor between the Simpson Desert Regional Reserve directly to the north, and the Lake Eyre National Park to the south.The Macumbah River and Kallakoopah Creek converge with the Warburton River on Kalamurina before flowing into Lake Eyre – the largest lake in Australia. The groups involved will be minimising human impact and removing feral herbivores and predators that impede the habitats and populations of several endangered and vulnerable animals.

  1. A simple thing the federal government and state government can do is to introduce a bounty on the humane harvesting of feral goat in these regions…driving from Bourke to Wilcannia its very lush at the moment but in that drive 1000s of goats roaming on the side of road. Goat is a fantastic meat, tastier and more nutritous than sheep.
