The IBA is one of very few sites known for the critically endangered Night Parrot. It also supports populations of the endangered Plains-wanderer and near threatened Australian Bustard, ten arid-biome-restricted species and more than 1% of the world population of Straw-necked Ibis and White-necked Heron.
