Last week, Arid Recovery received a visit from Tim Low - a biologist and author who had been commissioned by Australian Geographic to write a piece on captive breeding.
Coming from Queensland, Low had only read about Arid Recovery in scientific journals but was so impressed with the work they had been doing that he took the opportunity to get on a plane and visit the reserve.
"One of the strengths of Arid Recovery is that it's always been very research based," Tim explained, "it was never a case of just 'Let's put up a fence and toss in some animals,' it was always 'Let's put some Bettongs in, but we'll also put them in part of the reserve and not another part so we can see what changes they make to the vegetation.'"
