The Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development works with landholders in Western Australia’s rangeland regions to achieve sustainability through catchment and regional-scale monitoring, providing advice on how to address existing issues, and through developing and improving sustainable production systems.

Our rangelands are complex and extensive ecosystems that are managed by a diverse range of individuals, families and corporations. About three-quarters of Australia is classified as rangelands, with WA’s rangeland region extending across a variety of climatic and resource conditions.
