21st century conservation across Australia’s desert heartland


Australia’s desert country is the healthiest and most ecologically intact arid landscapes remaining on Earth. The Ten Deserts Initiative will work to build collaborative partnerships across state and territory borders to support the protection of the natural and cultural values of Australia’s outback. A vibrant future for the arid lands will recognise the interdependence of people and nature with social and economic development being built on healthy and sustainably managed landscapes.
