Significant Wildlife of the Northern Flinders Ranges

Rainbow Bee-eater

The following Flora and Fauna of the Northern Flinders Ranges is considered significant by the Federal Government of Australia. The tag ‘significant’, however, comes at a steep price:

Threatened species may be: Extinct (EE) , Critically Endangered (CE), Endangered (E), Vulnerable (V).

This pictorial list of the species is taken from the area of Copley, Leigh Creek and north and east of, as shown in the report parameter at the end of the images.

Other significant and fortunately not significant but otherwise wonderful and welcome species are not included, but will be added to the report as feedback arrives.

Driving carefully and no faster than 90km in the Flinders Ranges is one easy way of preserving our wildlife and also arriving safely to your destination.

Enjoy!

This report generated and edited by the William Light Foundation (WLF) for the benefit of the wider communities, concerned with issues of conservation, ecology, sustainability, water and managing risks of encroachments to local life and species, significant or not, for the benefit of nature and the communities that love , rely and depend upon it. 

Any reliance upon the information of this report should first be tested in alignment or not to the public good and then explored elsewhere in International Law, Treaties, UN Obligations, National Heritage, UNESCO, and a variety of other round tables that often spin a direction not necessarily aligned to that of conservation or local community good. 

Recognize it, love it, protect it…the beginning of the story.
