Australian Wildlife Conservancy and our conservation programs in the Kimberley have featured on prime-time television. Sunday Night, Channel 7's no.1 weekly current affairs program, ran a story on our efforts to protect one of Australia’s last great wildlife havens – the Artesian Range – on Sunday July 29.
The Artesian Range is a remarkable “lost world” featuring rugged sandstone ranges dissected by deep rainforest-filled gorges. Spectacular creeks and streams emerge from the Range, cascading over waterfalls into large rocky pools before draining into the Charnley River only a few kilometres from the Kimberley coast.
Entering the Artesian Range is like stepping back in time to a period before the arrival of feral animals, weeds and altered fire regimes. Here, species like the Golden-backed Tree-rat and the Monjon (Australia’s smallest rock-wallaby) are making a last stand. In total, the Artesian Range and surrounds protect more than 30 animal species found nowhere else on mainland Australia.
However, a wave of extinctions is now sweeping across northern Australia and we have only a narrow window of time to stop this wave engulfing the Artesian Range. Watch the Sunday Night story to see how your support is making a difference where it counts – by helping our land managers and field ecologists protect one of Australia’s last great wildlife havens.
