About

The Nature Conservation Society of South Australia is a voluntary body with members drawn from all parts of the State and all walks of life. The Society's primary objective is to foster the conservation of the State's wildlife and natural habitats. Our activities include:

  • protecting and managing habitats, particularly native vegetation
  • researching threatened species and habitats
  • working to ensure adequate park dedication, management and legislation
  • educating the community and all tiers of government
  • co-operating with other conservation groups and land managers

The Society is also active in public education through activities such as Sunday Walks with Nature program, general meetings and its journal Xanthopus.
