Gondwana Link

About

Since 2002 the Gondwana Link program has been supported by global, national and local organisations and a wonderful array of individuals, donors and funders. We are all working together to reconnect natural habitats across 1000 km of south-western Australia – a place of incredible diversity.

At the heart of Gondwana Link is a bold but simple plan: protect what bushland remains, restore the critical gaps, and maintain the extraordinary nature of south-western Australia.

And do it at a scale readily visible from space.
