Flora and fauna communities of the Cooper-Eromanga

A new study has comprehensively mapped the native flora and fauna communities of the Cooper-Eromanga Basin of South Australia.

The Flora and fauna communities of the Cooper-Eromanga Basin study gives the resources industry, regulatory agencies, pastoralists and researchers better ecological information from which to make sustainable development and management decisions within the region.

The project collated existing and new information to fill a gap on publicly available flora and fauna community mapping and reporting in this region of the state.

The study focuses on developing a better understanding of the natural environments, vegetation and fauna communities, high value natural assets and their spatial locations across the region.

The study was jointly commissioned by the Department of Premier and Cabinet and the Department of Environment, Water and Natural Resources.
