"We're not just trying to stem the tide of extinction. This time we're on the front foot and fighting back."
We’ve chosen to start in the Yorke Peninsula for several reasons:
• It used to be incredibly biodiverse; a finely balanced ecosystem where mammals, plants, birds, and insects thrived.
• It has a mix of coastal and forest vegetation, including a protected national park, making it an ideal breeding ground for a range of species.
• Its narrowness means a fence is planned for construction across the Peninsula to stop feral pests and predators getting in. These include rabbits, foxes and feral cats, which contributed to native species loss in the first place.
• Just about everyone with an interest in the region, including farmers, Indigenous communities, and local partners, are committed to this work.
But we need one more group on board: you!
