Wildlife Spotting

Kangaroo Island is renowned for its stunning coastlines, spectacular geological formations, diverse walking trails, history, and accessibility to viewing Australian wildlife in their natural setting.

KI is a unique region and is home to a diverse range of native animal species. Many of these animals are now threatened, so it is important that we conserve their habitats and manage the threats that impact on them.

Natural Resources Kangaroo Island have implemented a number of projects and work together with volunteer groups to maintain, restore and recover the native animal populations on the island.
