Bison once roamed the great plains – A case study for training in Open Standards for the practice of conservation

Bison once roamed the Great Plains of the Americas in the millions – a central element of the socio-cultural and ecological processes that defined pre-European America. In an all-to-familiar story, the bison were largely eradicated to both cripple the Native American people and open up these rangelands for the use of new species.

A natural legacy - revitalising private land conservation in South Australia for nature, people and thriving rural landscapes

Voluntary conservation commitments by landholders have a vital role to play in protecting South Australia’s native wildlife and sustaining thriving rural landscapes. Many landholders have committed to conservation by entering into a Heritage Agreement. There are now more than 1,600 Heritage Agreements protecting more than 1.8 million hectares.
