Bounceback and Beyond

Funded over five years to 2023 through the Regional Land Partnerships Fund, Bounceback and Beyond will reduce the impacts of foxes and goats across the landscape for wildlife and livestock and improve the conservation status of a range of native flora and fauna species.

It will significantly expand the positive impacts of 25 years of coordinated landscape-scale feral animal control under the State-funded Bounceback Program and related Commonwealth grants.

Bounceback and Beyond

The Bounceback and Beyond project is an extension of Bounceback, a landscape scale conservation program that aims to protect and restore the semi-arid environments of the Flinders, Olary and Gawler ranges in the SA Arid Lands region.

It began in response to the decline in yellow-footed rock-wallaby numbers in the Ikara-Flinders Ranges National Park in the early 1990s and now operates on national park reserves, Aboriginal owned and managed lands, private sanctuaries and pastoral land.
