Holistic, coordinated program delivery across the rangelands of Western Australia. By working together, we can manage the many pressures on the rangelands, and protect and preserve the wealth of biodiversity that calls it home and encourage sustainable land management.
Natural resource management (NRM) is about taking care of our natural resources—our water, soil, plants and animals—through helping the people who care for them—our farmers, pastoralists, landholders and communities.

The rangelands or ‘outback’ of Western Australia cover 85 per cent of the state, and
generally represent a region of low rainfall with arid and semi-arid climate with also
some tropical and sub-tropic climates in the far north.
Utilised for mining, pastoralism and tourism, many areas of the rangelands are suffering
from land degradation and loss of biodiversity.
Sustainable use of the rangelands is critical to Western Australia’s future. With proper
management of these resources including land, water, biodiversity and marine biological
systems, WA communities will continue to prosper economically, socially, culturally and environmentally.
