Environment

South Australia, including islands, covers an area of 983,482 square kilometres with a coastline, also including islands, of 5067 kilometres (Geoscience Australia). The diverse landscape, from the cool climate of the south-east and islands off the coast,  to the deserts of the north and west and vast salt lakes north of the Flinders Ranges, has been shaped over hundreds of millions of years both by the forces of nature and, more recently, the impact of humans.

Over the years our attitude to the natural environment has changed. We now understand the importance of the conservation of flora, fauna, soil, water and air. Sustainability and biodiversity are concepts we now embrace.
