Traditional lands of the Ngarrindjeri people
Cassinia Environmental has a partnership site near Coorong Lakes. The overall goal here is to improve the extent and condition of Coastal Mallee and Swamp Paperbark vegetation. This is a model for sustainable landscape protection and restoration through community partnerships, here with the Ngarrindjeri people. This video profiles the Cassinia and Mount Sandy partnership.
In 2022 A Rocha Australia started to help at this site in South Australia with revegetating cleared farmland. Locally indigenous plants are being propagated in the Raukkan nursery. Over the last two years, thousands of tubestock have been planted.
In September 2023 Wilderlands Australia ecologists led a spring walk in the conservation area, revealing an amazing array of flowers. The Orchid Society of South Australia has been invited to help identify the diverse range of orchids and catalogue the number of rare Metallic Sun-Orchids.
