Welcome to Arid Recovery

Arid Recovery is a conservation research initiative based in the South Australian outback and dedicated to the restoration of Australia’s arid lands.

Established in 1997, the program is centred around a 123km² fenced reserve. Feral cats, rabbits and foxes have been eradicated from a total of 60km² and this has provided an area of complete protection into which four species of locally extinct mammals have so far been reintroduced.

Arid Recovery is a unique example of a highly successful partnership between industry, government, research and community via the four way partnership that supports Arid Recovery.
