Thanks to a scholarship from our partners in ecosystem science, Bush Heritage Australia, Justin McCann from the Centre of Ecosystem Science will be conducting research at the Bush Heritage property, Naree Station Reserve. This site is located 125 km north-west of Bourke near Yantabulla Swamp on the Cuttaburra Creek within the Warrego River catchment. The purpose of this collaboration is to inform the conservation management of the property for biodiversity values and understand its importance in the greater Warrego-Paroo catchments.
This project is a three year research project headed by Prof. Richard Kingsford and involving eight other Chief Investigators from three universities and two government departments.
The management of water resources and dependent ecosystems remains one of the most critical issues for Australia
One of the more effective means of conserving biodiversity is to establish reserves where many threatening activities are not permitted.
