FISH RIVER EXPEDITION
Fish River Station, a stunning 178,116 hectare property on the mighty Daly River, is breaking new ground in nature conservation in remote Australia.
The owner of this huge station was keen to see his lightly grazed property with its enormous biodiversity values conserved. Fish River Station will now be protected forever as part of the National Reserve System - Australia's most secure way of protecting native habitat - and is creating new conservation jobs for Indigenous people in Australia's remote Top End.
A new partnership between government, conservation organisations and the Indigenous Land Corporation (ILC) created this landmark conservation model. The $13 million dollar property was purchased with $8.6 million from Caring for our Country, $1.4 million from the Indigenous Land Corporation and $3 million from the conservation groups, The Nature Conservancy and Pew Environment Group.

Fish River Station will eventually be handed back to an organisation representing its traditional owners, who will manage its magnificent biodiversity for future generations. In the meantime the ILC - an organisation that helps Indigenous Australians acquire and manage property - holds the land in a trust arrangement with Greening Australia and is managing the property with Indigenous rangers and support from The Nature Conservancy.
Fish River is the result of a great alliance with new thinking about how to build long-term conservation in some of our most remote country. It is an exciting new model for Australia's National Reserve System, conserving outstanding biodiversity, providing sustainable livelihoods to Indigenous Australians and handing land back to the traditional owners.
