The Society for Kimberley Indigenous Plants and Animals is a group of dedicated and enthusiastic naturalists who propagate Kimberley plant species, undertake field trips to collect specimens, conduct flora and fauna surveys, and undertake weed control work. Through work such as community tree plantings, we educate and inform not only our members but the community as well. SKIPA members work to increase each other’s knowledge of the nature of the Kimberley and to share this knowledge with the wider community.

This site is predominantly a multi-contributor blog with posts from our wonderful SKIPA members. Read the blog and navigate our website to learn more about native plants and animals of the Kimberley.
