Our History

Since the early 1990s, SSAA have been formally working with various government authorities to conserve native species and manage species that are negatively impacting the environment. The South Australian branch of the SSAA pioneered the Hunting and Conservation division to assist the authorities as a no-cost service, and successfully worked with the National Parks and Wildlife Service on feral goat control throughout the Gannon Ranges.

The group developed a training and accreditation programme to ensure that each group member had the necessary skills and knowledge that displayed they could operate safely within the restricted parks areas. Since that time SSAA members have initiated divisions in six Australian states and territories.

The SSAA Queensland division of Conservation and Wildlife Management was established in 2001 and has developed a strong and diversified membership base covering the south east corner, central, central highlands and far north Queensland areas.
