The project is a partnership between the Fitzroy Basin Association, the Upper Dawson Branch of the Wildlife Preservation Society of Australia, SANTOS, Qld. Parks and Wildlife Service and members of the Taroom community.

Landholders responded well to the set of management guidelines that were produced, alongside the other communication documents developed for this project.
