The Pilbara Corridors Project is funded through the Commonwealth Government’s Biodiversity Fund. The Project works in collaboration with people in the Fortescue River catchment of the WA Pilbara’s region – pastoral and mining land managers, and the indigenous community – through shared knowledge and best practice.
The project will work on landscape scale activities that connect across management boundaries providing coordinated responses to biodiversity threats.
There are five main aspects to the Pilbara Corridors Project which include:
