This fact sheet briefly describes a research project being conducted in the Northern Tablelands NSW to demonstrate the compatibility of commercially successful profitable wool production and biological diversity. The specific aims of the project are to identify the biophysical and socioeconomic links between wool production and biodiversity conservation, highlight profitable conservation practices for wool growers in temperate regions using case studies and monitor farms, encourage adoption of profitable conservation practices, and use the research as the basis for marketing initiatives or an industry-coordinated environmental management system.
