Desert Discovery Inc. is a non-profit voluntary organisation with the principal purpose of ensuring the protection and enhancement of the natural environment in remote regions of Australia. This aim is achieved by selecting and researching a remote location on a biennial basis, and placing the findings on the public record.
A secondary aim is the involvement of natural sciences students in the field research at each project to provide them with practical experience to enhance their studies.
To be successful, Desert Discovery needs to attract and retain a mix of volunteers skilled in the natural sciences and all aspects of outback travel and logistics. Desert Discovery also needs to maintain contact with government, non-government agencies and land owners to identify areas where research would be beneficial.
