NRM in the Rangelands Conference

Desert Channels Queensland and the Australian Rangeland Society hosted the NRM in the Rangelands Conference- shaping our future, 2021. Members of The Royal Society of Queensland were prominent in organising the event.

Rangelands cover about 80% of the Australian interior, spanning 3100 km east to west and 1400 km north to south. This vast region contains varied landscapes, including,  savannas, woodlands, shrub lands grasslands and wetlands. Water supply is often sporadic with many river systems draining into internal lakes, such as Lake Eyre.

Over the past seven years drought has affected much of the Rangelands and the focus has turned to improving future resilience of the environment, the communities and industry. More information from the ARS website.
