Arid Recovery Conservation
Arid Recovery is an independent, not-for-profit conservation initiative reserve in South Australia. Established in 1997, the program is centred around a 123km² fenced reserve.
Feral cats, rabbits and foxes have been eradicated from a total of 60km² and this has provided an area of complete protection into which four species of locally extinct mammals have so far been reintroduced.
The Rotary Club of Frankston has donated labour and equipment such as a chainsaw, an 8kva diesel generator and electric vehicle hoist.
The next stage is to refurbish some relocatable huts to provide an educational room and facilities for onsite researchers.
