Western Australia’s Kimberley region is an area of spectacular natural beauty with unique landscapes and wildlife like nowhere else on earth. It is home to a living Aboriginal culture tens of thousands of years old.
But with little protection, the Kimberley is at risk. Increasing pressure to open a new mining frontier alongside the impacts of fires, weeds and feral animals threaten to tip the balance on the Kimberley.
