Friends of Gluepot Reserve

If you are interested in preserving our environment for future generations and joining an enthusiastic and dedicated group of volunteers who manage and operate Gluepot Reserve, why not consider joining the “Friends of Gluepot Reserve”. The Friends of Gluepot is an affiliated group of the Friends of Parks scheme in South Australia. There are many such groups who do voluntary work in Parks each year. Gluepot Reserve is Australia’s largest community managed and operated conservation reserve and is run entirely by volunteers. Situated 64 km from the River Murray in South Australia’s Riverland, Gluepot is 54,000 ha. in size, and is home to 18 nationally threatened species of birds, 53 species of reptiles and 12 species of bats, some of which are nationally threatened. There are few areas of the world that support such a concentration of threatened species.
