Wild Deserts’ Training Zone: Breeding smarter threatened species in the Strzelecki Desert

We need funding for another 10 km of predator-proof fencing for a massive hundred square kilometres ‘Wild Training Zone’, linked to the Wild Dog Fence. This will allow reintroduced threatened species living where feral predator numbers are tightly managed. We will build on recent scientific advances, showing predator awareness behaviour of threatened native mammals can be improved. Our innovative new approach will be critical for threatened species conservation around the world.

Your funding will go to:

  • 10 km of predator-proof fence, enclosing a one hundred square kilometre ‘Wild Training Zone’, where locally extinct mammals can survive in a feral predator-controlled area;
  • Research to increase predator-awareness of threatened species;
  • Management of threatened species and ecosystem restoration and;
  • Providing opportunities for visitors.

 

What can be achieved with your help?
Your donation can contribute:

  • $200 for building and management of 4 m of feral-proof fence – another ‘brick in the wall’ for our target 10 km.
  • $5,000 for a radio collar and tracking of a feral animals to monitor their behaviour and improved predator awareness behaviour of threatened species.
  • $30,000 for building and management of a kilometre of fence to enclose the Wild Training Zone.
