The Mallee CMA's primary responsibility is to ensure that natural resources in the
region are managed in an integrated and ecologically sustainable way.
Our work is based on science and delivered through
meaningful partnerships with local organisations
such as Landcare, community groups, and government agencies in the Victorian Mallee.
The Mallee CMA region covers 3.9 million hectares - about one fifth
of Victoria. It is the largest catchment area in the state and runs along the Murray River from Nyah to the South Australian border, through areas of high-value irrigated horticulture and National Parks, and south through vast dryland cropping areas and public reserves to the Wimmera.

AN innovative field guide incorporating Indigenous ecological knowledge with contemporary methods of pest animal management is now available free of charge to landholders across the region.
Launched today by Mallee Catchment Management Authority (CMA) Chairperson Sharyon Peart, together with members of the local Indigenous community, the field guide helps landholders identify Aboriginal cultural places and appropriate ways for managing pest animals at these sites.
