World-class environment vision to 'bring back the species'
Date:6/18/2008

One of Australia's leading environmentalists will spearhead a world-class project to help revegetate the Mount Lofty Ranges, to stave off the effects of climate change and halt the loss of bird, animal and plant species.

Associate Professor David Paton AM from the University of Adelaide will lead a multi-million-dollar program that aims to:

  • help re-establish native vegetation to 30% of the Mt Lofty region an unprecedented scale globally;
  • prevent the loss of native flora and fauna;
  • promote the return of some native species that have disappeared across the Ranges;
  • provide major environmental outcomes that will benefit the State and local communities for generations to come.

Glenthorne, a 228ha property owned and operated by the University about 17km south of Adelaide, will play a pivotal role in delivering these outcomes.

Dr Paton from the School of Earth & Environmental Sciences is highly regarded for his research activities at Kangaroo Island and the Coorong, both of which are internationally recognised South Australian icons.

Under Dr Paton's leadership, the University of Adelaide will embark on a major research, education and community engagement program centred on Glenthorne called the Woodland Recovery Initiative.

This initiative will:

  • replenish approximately 100ha of Glenthorne with a native habitat that is as close to a pre-colonial state as possible;
  • help scientists to better understand how the Mt Lofty Ranges can be revegetated with habitats that can support the region's wildlife;
  • help scientists to tackle the added challenges presented by climate change;
  • build on and contribute to existing government and community plans and initiatives aimed at conserving the biodiversity of the Mt Lofty Ranges;
  • provide opportunities for the community such as school groups and re
