Keeping the Desert Connected

IDA Project Area

The Australian desert is the one of the largest and most environmentally and culturally connected areas on the planet.

It has been cared for and expertly managed over thousands of years by Indigenous minds, hearts and hands. Today, a network of Indigenous rangers are sharing information, practices and working together to provide the highest standard of stewardship and care for the desert.

By strengthening the connections between rangers we can ensure that the desert will be well protected meaning that future generations of Australians will reap the benefits of learning from and connecting to a healthy country.
