The “Remarkable Southern Flinders” proposal, put forward by The Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife, is set to receive a $10 million cash injection.

The project aspires to turn Mr Remarkable and the Southern Flinders Ranges into a world-class adventure tourism destination.

CEO of the Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife, Ian Darbyshire said that this project would be a valuable addition to Australia’s National Parks.

“As the charity partner of Australia’s National Parks, we are thrilled to support this project that builds on the Parks 2025 vision for South Australia. This project will support the creation of a new national park precinct of over 30,000 hectares and create a world-class tourism asset which will provide access to nature and economic benefits for local communities long into the future.”

Wildlife Heroes Grant Funds Custom Built Recovery Avery For Apex Predators

Birds of prey injured and treated on the Northern Rivers will have a custom-built aviary to recover before they are released back into nature. Byron Bay Wildlife Hospital received a grant of $50,000 from the Foundation for National Parks and Wildlife to build the structure and save wildlife.

Founder vet Stephen Van Mill said the free-flight aviary will be located on land owned by the proprietors of Sea Peace, a subtropical forest on 368 acres of regenerated land in Ewingsdale.

"The facility will treat birds of prey, raptors - wedge-tailed eagles, hawks, owls and falcons," he said.

FNPW awarded one of three initial Bushfire Recovery Nursery grants to Yankalilla Community Nursery, located in South Australia.

This came as part of the first stage of FNPW's mission to plant 1 million trees in Bushfire Recovery Nurseries over the next five years, in partnership with global non-profit, One Tree Planted and French beauty brand, L’OCCITANE.

The nursery will expand to grow more than double its usual amount of seedlings, with volunteers planting a total of 40,000 trees and associated plants to support the recovery of the Mount Lofty to Kangaroo Island Connection, plus help with revegetation on the scorched island.
