THE ENVIRONMENT

From Jabiru Safari Lodge

Jabiru Safai Lodge has received Advanced Ecotourism certification with Ecotourism Australia.

All the income made from the sustainable tourism at Jabiru Safari is reinvested back into the the not-for-profit organisation The Wildlife Conservancy of Tropical Queensland, who maintain the reserve with the continuous help of volunteers. The money raised from tourism also goes into wetlands and savanna research work, education and conservation projects, which is essential in preserving this spectacular part of Australia.

Interpretive Centre: In the midst of the dry savanna country of the Australian Outback lies Clancy’s Lagoon with its spectacular Interpretive Centre. The Interpretive Centre is a blend of modern and vernacular North Queensland architecture using the traditional materials of corrugated iron and timber with sweeping views across Clancy’s Lagoon to the Hann Tableland National Park. The centre is staffed by expert guides ready with advice and assistance on activities and the Reserve’s natural history.
Mareeba Tropical Savannah and Wetland Reserve is situated on the East Asian-Australasian flyway and provides a unique environment in which to enjoy Australia’s tropical wetland and savanna birds. A series of 8 inter-connected lagoons, creeks and channels weave their way across the 2,000 hectare Reserve, with lagoons ranging in size from several hundred acres to much smaller intimate habitats. The lagoons attract a rich and diverse array of native wildlife and provide a sanctuary for almost all of Australia’s tropical waterbirds. The Reserve is home to several threatened, rare and endangered species, including the Gouldian Finch, Buff-breasted Button-quail, Black Throated Finch, and Brown Treecreeper.

The Conservancy is also at the forefront of the race to save the Gouldian Finch from extinction through its Gouldian Finch Reintroduction Program .A visiting birdwatcher can expect to get up to 60 species during a day’s visit, rising rapidly when staying overnight, as many species are regular visitors and breeders. This number will greatly increase again if the lodge is used as a base for visiting surrounding rainforest areas.
