Naturewise Conservation Holidays introduces you to Western Victoria's Little Desert region that holds some of the last remaining pockets of untouched Mallee and provides critical habitat for a range of species, including the endangered Malleefowl and Red Tail Black Cockatoo.
Naturewise Conservation Holidays introduces you to Western Victoria's Little Desert region that holds some of the last remaining pockets of untouched Mallee and provides critical habitat for a range of species, including the endangered Malleefowl and Red Tail Black Cockatoo. Invasive plants and animals, urban development and natural disasters have caused these last remaining reserves to become fragmented, placing pressure on the region's biodiversity. The constantly changing environment has also resulted in a distinct lack of knowledge on the region's species diversity and population numbers. This knowledge is vital and supports effective conservation management of the landscape. Join Conservation Volunteers and Parks Victoria and make a big difference at Little Desert.You will undertake important research through remote camera monitoring and other hands on conservation activities. You will also learn about the endangered Mallefowl recovery program and encounter a range of native wildlife species held at the Little Desert Sanctuary for research purposes including Sugar Gliders, Brush tailed Bettongs and Bush stone Curlews.
