A healthy and prosperous land for all
About the project
Marna Banggara is an ambitious project that aims to restore southern Yorke Peninsula’s spectacular landscape by returning locally-extinct species and reinvigorating the ecological processes that ensure the bushland’s health. It is the first project in Australia to apply these rewilding principles in a working landscape, where conservation, agriculture and the community exist side-by-side. The project is expected to provide flow-on benefits to farm production and in time, become a drawcard for tourists.
