Arid areas in Australia are among the worst affected by the impacts of cats, domestic stock, rabbits and foxes since European settlement. However, few conservation projects have targeted arid areas in the past.

Arid Recovery conducts feral track monitoring outside the Reserve to gather data on general trends of Feral Cats, Foxes, Rabbits and Wild Dogs.  This monitoring covers and area which incorporates Roxby Downs Station, Andamooka Station, Stuart Creek Station and the Olympic Dam Special Mining Lease.

To monitor the feral animals on these transects the spoor (tracks) of the animal are recorded as being either present or absent from the transect.
