Reconnected country across south-western Australia, from the wet forests in the southwest corner to the dry woodlands and mallee bordering the Nullarbor Plain, in which ecosystem function and biodiversity are restored and maintained.
‘Gondwana Link is the most exciting thing that is happening in restoration in Australia, if not the world.’
Professor Richard Hobbs, University of Western Australia
What we do
Giving fire back to Goreng Country
“Fire is a part of us, we are a part of it”, says Elder Uncle Eugene Eades. It has been a long time since the Goreng and Menang people of the Great Southern gave fire back to Country in the Noongar way. Gondwana Link’s Jim Underwood describes his experience as a non-Aboriginal member of a collaborative team that has supported a recent cultural burn on Country.
Keeping a close eye on who’s there
For several years the Ngadju Rangers have been setting up remote cameras to monitor what’s happening when they aren’t there. The rangers have used them to monitor whether malleefowl are using a nest, what animals are using a water source, who lives in hollow logs, and what animals are visiting the recently burnt country.
Nowanup Ranger seed collection training
Through a partnership with Greening Australia and Woodside, the Nowanup Rangers undertook accredited training in native seed collection. A short video tells this story.
From Queensland to Gondwana Link
Bill and Jane Thompson always wanted to be active participants in a large conservation project so they moved from Queensland and bought “Yarraweyah Falls”, a 1500 ha property in central Gondwana Link.
