15 million hectares of native vegetation

Earth Hour shared this from the Nature Conservancy about some amazing, pristine nature in Australia. Read more below about this beautiful photo and explore more nature.


With nearly 15 million hectares of native vegetation, Australia’s Great Western Woodlands are still largely intact, blanketing one percent of the continent and supporting some of the world’s most unique and vulnerable ecosystems.

The Conservancy is part of an innovative collaboration between conservation groups, government, Indigenous communities and mining companies that is working to provide the Great Western Woodland’s people and wildlife with the tools to conserve their homes.
