  • Outback extremes
    A more sophisticated understanding of how climate change will impact Cravens Peak and Ethabuka reserves is informing our work.
  • From the President
    In January we welcome incoming CEO Heather Campbell, while Gerard O’Neill departs after seven years of outstanding service.
  • Desert dwellers
    There’s a common misconception that deserts are devoid of life, but the arid Outback is home to a huge diversity of plants and animals.
  • Platypus patrol
    A group of dedicated volunteers is helping to shed light on Platypus populations in the upper Murrumbidgee River.
  • Darwin's legacy
    Fifteen years ago, two men sat on a log and talked into the night. Their conversation shaped the future of the land on which they rested.
  • My Happy Place
    “I like to come down to the gorge and spend a night camped under the trees listening to the sound of the wind blowing through their branches.”– Cravens Peak Reserve Manager, Jane Blackwood
