Arid Recovery research

Arid Recovery has a strong research focus. One of our aims is to research and monitor the processes of ecological restoration and provide people with information and techniques on how to improve management of Australia's arid lands. Feral predators are the greatest concern for Arid Recovery’s mission to reintroduce native wildlife to the arid zone, and are therefore our greatest priority for research. Our goals are to understand how feral predators are so effective, and to test smart targeted ways of controlling them. It is our hope that this research will be useful to wildlife conservation well beyond our patch in outback South Australia.

Whilst some research is conducted by Arid Recovery staff, other research is in collaboration with external agencies. Arid Recovery maintains research links with the University of Adelaide, the SA Arid Lands NRM Board and the University of NSW.
