About this fact sheet
Since European settlement, most of the Iron-grass Natural Temperate Grassland of South Australia has been cleared, or degraded by pasture improvement and, in some circumstances, grazing. The small amount of natural temperate grassland of this type remaining in good condition is now protected under Australia’s national environment law—the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC Act).
