This is a video about action for sustainability on the Willalooka Pastoral Company's property in South Australia. Owner Thyne McGregor describes the natural characteristics of the extensive property in terms of its rainfall, soil quality and the Marcollat Watercourse. He tells how the property was originally cleared for pasture. Emphasising the importance of ecosystems for sustainability, he explains the operation of an 800 ha project to regenerate eight inter-connected wetlands along the watercourse. The video lasts 5:08 min and in the latter part McGregor discusses the critical importance of water for stock production and points out other ways the property is seeking to be sustainable. These include solar power generation; paddock mapping and rotational grazing; lift-up fences and gates; fertilising, where needed, utilising some non-traditional fertilisers; and a long-term plan to improve lower-yield grass species.
