Something exciting is happening on Yorke Peninsula in South Australia...
WWF-Australia is proud to be working with our partners to restore this spectacular landscape. Around 27 native species have already been lost from this area, and many of those are at risk from disappearing from Australia forever.
This is our best chance to build hope on Yorke and turn the tide on our nation-wide extinction crisis. Together, we’ve set an ambitious goal: reintroduce locally extinct species across 170,000 hectares of the southern Yorke Peninsula over the next five years. This includes threatened species like brush-tailed bettong, red-tailed phascogales and bandicoots.
