This report provides a range of strategies to improve integration between agriculture and conservation in a biosphere reserve. The research gathered information from international case studies and evaluated their local relevance in discussions with a range of people with an interest in the Fitzgerald Biosphere Reserve in Western Australia. The participants included farmers, conservationists, agricultural scientists and natural resource managers.

The report summarises both the case studies and other ideas from research participants and provides some recommendations for research and demonstration projects. The report provides a pathway for the Fitzgerald Biosphere Reserve, or other Australian biosphere reserves, to further test some of these approaches.
