The Artesian Range: a refuge for the Kimberley's endangered wildlife
The Artesian Range is a "lost world" which provides refuge for some of Australia's rarest mammals, including a suite of animals found only in pockets of the north Kimberley.
You can help protect the Artesian Range and its wildlife forever
In order to secure the Artesian Range, AWC has brokered the acquisition of the Charnley River Pastoral Station by a supporter of AWC. A section of the station has now become the Artesian Range Wildlife Sanctuary (see map under Property Profile), with management responsibility for that section formally delegated to AWC. This is a ground-breaking new model for conservation developed by AWC to protect one of Australia's most ecologically significant regions.
You can help protect forever one of Australia's last great wildlife havens
The Artesian Range protects a unique assemblage of Kimberley mammals, birds and other fauna and flora. However, to deliver effective conservation for this biological treasure, we urgently need to establish a remote operations base and implement key tasks such as fire management and feral animal control.
