The Great Victoria Desert
The Great Victoria Desert Biodiversity Trust is a new environmental initiative which will focus on conserving and increasing knowledge of biodiversity in the Great Victoria Desert.
The Trust was established by the Tropicana Joint Venture as part of its offset strategy for the Tropicana Gold Mine in Western Australia under the Environmental Protection and Conservation Act 1999. The Trust represents a new structure of offset delivery and operates as a unique partnership model between industry and government.
The Great Victoria Desert IBRA region has six sub-regions and stretches from east of Kalgoorlie to west of Coober Pedy in South Australia.
