Bilbies to board Great Southern Ark

A 17 km long fence across southern Yorke Peninsula in South Australia will be the foundation to a 120,000 hectare sanctuary, aimed at ‘re-wilding’ the environment.

The plan involves Naturally Yorke, the South Australian and federal governments, WWF and Greening Australia in removing pests (including rabbits, cats and foxes) and reintroducing native species that are no longer found there (including bilbies, quolls and numbats).

The ecosystem approach is a long term strategy to save endangered species.
