Bush Heritage’s Cravens Peak reserve managers talk about life in the desert

Mark and Nella Lithgow have been reserve managers on Bush Heritage’s Cravens Peak property for 18 months. They are also responsible for taking care of neighbouring Ethabuka.

We’ve got the biggest diversity in reptiles region in the world. That’s something worth boasting about. We’d like more people to know about it and value it for what it is.

We’re in the heart of grazing country and we’re surround by cattle properties. When a new shoot comes up off a tree a cow chomps it off straight away. Here, we get to keep ours and we can actually see what’s happening.
