Our Outback needs people
The Outback is large, but so is the scale of the threats it faces. Unmanaged fires, feral animals and weeds are slowly and steadily degrading the lands and rivers of our Outback.
People are needed to manage these threats and bring the land back into balance and abundance, but people living and working in the Outback face many social, economic and environmental challenges, leading many to leave in order to find better opportunities for themselves and their families.
Small changes to laws and reforms in the Outback and government support for conservation, restoring productivity, tourism and carbon farming projects, would provide new opportunities with big benefits for nature and people.
