Case studies in Western Australia
Mornington Sanctuary is one of Australia's largest non-government protected areas covering over 321,600 hectares. The sanctuary lies in the heart of the Central Kimberley bioregion, which is recognised as one of the world's last true wilderness areas.
Twin Creeks Community Conservation Reserve
Just inland from Albany on Western Australia's southern-most tip, the people of the Porongurup region have banded together to preserve a beloved stretch of bushland.
At over 500 hectares, Twin Creeks Conservation Reserve now protects around 1,000 species of plants including the endangered late hammer orchid, and is living proof that small communities can achieve big dreams.
