Great Southern Ark Project Gains Ground

There has been some major leaps made in terms of landscape conservation on the Southern Yorke Peninsula with the Great Southern Ark project getting the green light this month.

The project has evolved from 10 years of planning with a long future ahead to conserve the natural habitat, reintroduce native threatened species, and keep the feral predators at bay.

Renae had a chat to Jasmine Swales, a Landscape Ranger for Natural Resources Northern and Yorke, who enlightened us as to the development and aim of the project - which includes the construction of a 23km exclusion fence - and working with land owners to make to it all possible.
