Life on the land in Australia

The NSW government is about to decide who will run one of most ambitious environmental projects that have come out of the Murray-Darling basin plan.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                       If successful, the rehabilitation of the Nimmie-Caira property could result in the restoration of the largest wetlands on the Murrumbidgee river. It would create a sanctuary for wild life & birds, extend vital wetland habitats and preserve an area rich in Aboriginal cultural heritage – all under private-sector ownership. But Anne Davies reveals plenty of scepticism about the outcome of this scheme, which has already cost $180m, and even speculation that much of the 84,000-hectare property is to be converted into an irrigated cotton farm.
