Why we survey these rangeland areas
Inventory and condition survey data assists people in the pastoral industry to plan for the sustainable use of natural resources and the protection of areas suffering from degradation or at risk of degradation. The survey reports identify and describe the condition of soils, landforms, vegetation, habitat, ecosystems, and declared plants and animals.
The areas surveyed
Most of Western Australia’s rangeland pastoral leases have been surveyed, except for pastoral leases in the Southern Goldfields region and to the north-east of Wiluna-Meekatharra. The 15th rangeland survey – in the Southern Goldfields region, covering the area known as the Great Western Woodlands – will be completed in 2018.
