Research & Resources
Deepening our knowledge of the rare hilly grasslands and mallee of our properties is very important to Worlds End Conservation.
Regular monitoring of the condition and prevalence of native plants and animals on our property will help us estimate how well our conservation strategies are working. It will also help us understand how species are faring as climate change progresses.
The ecological communities of prime importance on Worlds End Conservation properties are the nationally endangered communities of Lomandra effusa tussock grasslands on shallow loams in low hills; Danthonia spp and Stipa spp temperate grasslands and the Eucalyptus odorata +/- Eucalyptus leucoxylon grassy low woodlands on loamy soils in low hills
We have lodged sets of plant specimens in the State Herbarium.
In 2014 the Nature Conservation Society of SA set up a number of baseline monitoring sites for flora and fauna on our properties and will return for further monitoring in 5 years’ time.
Regular bird netting and monitoring occurred at Hallelujah Hills for many years until recently. We hope to be able to re-instate bird monitoring soon.
