The Great Victoria Desert

Biodiversity Trust

The Great Victoria Desert Biodiversity Trust is an environmental initiative which conserves and increases knowledge of biodiversity in the Great Victoria Desert.  The Trust focuses on two threatened species the Nganamara (Malleefowl) and Sandhill Dunnart. The Trust also works with partners in the region to create landscape scale actions to help protect biodiversity across 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.
