The Kimberley region of Western Australia is one of the world’s last great wilderness areas. Covering more than 400,000 square kilometres, it is home to some of the country’s most iconic natural landmarks. The Kimberley’s diverse habitats support an astonishing variety of plants and animals, many of which are found nowhere else on Earth. Although, the rugged and remote nature of the region offers them some protection, they are still at risk from threats such as feral species, fire and climate change.
By focusing on particular aspects of this remarkable region, this book highlights the Kimberley’s ecological importance. It also explores how various groups – including local Indigenous Australian communities – are working together to protect this pristine landscape.
This book is a valuable resource for nature lovers, adventurers and any one interested in this extraordinary part of Australia.
