Quote of the Moment:

“Technology is dominated by two types of people: those who understand what they do not manage, and those who manage what they do not understand.”

the Land:

To understand the history of Kachana we need to go back a very long time. Suffice to say we inherited the custodianship of a desertifying environment fashioned by humans; a man made “brittle environment” in an area that Nature had designed to be largely “non-brittle”.

Our immediate challenge as resource managers is to stabilise our eroding resource base and to revitalise the landscape so that the area can meet our human demands. Our aim is a biologically healthy landscape gaining in biodiversity. The fundamental ecosystem processes at work in this landscape as well as our expectations need to be in tune with Nature’s original design.


These four areas have the same physical foundations; the difference you see is human management.
