In the heartland of Warlpiri country, the traditional owners have dedicated Australia's largest Indigenous Protected Area. At 10.15 million hectares, the Southern Tanami IPA is bigger than Tasmania and the largest protected area on Australian land.

The Southern Tanami is rich in cultural and natural values. Home to the Warlpiri speaking people, the Indigenous Protected Area links central Australia's deserts to subtropical savannahs. It is a critical part of the proposed Trans-Australian Eco-link, an internationally significant wildlife corridor stretching more than 3,500 kilometres from Arnhem Land to the Great Australian Bight.
