The Wyss Foundation has committed up to $4 million to The Nature Conservancy to help the organization’s Australia Program create a more than 200,000-acre sustainable agriculture zone and protected area in Australia’s Murray-Darling Basin. Protection of this area has long been a priority of Australia’s conservation leaders because of its importance to migratory birds. This project will apply a creative, matrix approach to conserving nature whereby portions of the protected area will remain in sustainable agricultural production while other areas will be strictly protected.
