Fish River Station, a stunning 178,116 hectare property on the mighty Daly River, is breaking new ground in nature conservation in remote Australia.
In recognition of its outstanding natural values, Fish River Station was last year purchased for conservation in a ground-breaking collaboration by the Indigenous Land Corporation (ILC), the Nature Conservancy and the Pew Environment Group with assistance from the Australia Government's Caring for our Country Initiative and support by Greening Australia. The ILC owns and manages the property and will eventually hand it back to traditional owners to manage its magnificent biodiversity for future generations.
A team of biodiversity scientists are surveying Fish River Station as part of a nationwide Bush Blitz — looking to find new species and document its plants and animals.
