Until recently, the NT’s savannahs were the least damaged and unpolluted in the world. But they’re changing fast – and right now, the Northern Territory’s laws are too weak to protect them.
Savannah woodlands are an extraordinarily rich, complex and fragile ecosystem.
In this bubble of life, the woodland’s plants, animals, insects and other organisms, as well as the weather and the landscape, are intricately interconnected.
Yet this ecosystem is under increasing pressure from land clearing, agriculture, mining, feral animals and poor land management, alarmingly, savanna woodlands are now considered a ‘collapsing’ ecosystem.
We’re working with communities on the ground using the law to protect these vital ecosystems.
