Tanami Conservation Zone is the name of largest conservation zone of Australia and home to the country’s most endangered species.

Tanami Desert of northern Australia is one of the Interim Biogeographic Regionalisation for Australia (IBRA) regions. In July 2012, Australia declared more than 10 million hectares (24.71 million acres) of Aboriginal land as its largest conservation zone. The new conservation zone – said to be Australia’s largest – encompasses deserts and savannas with the southern Tanami Desert in the Northern Territory. The survival of these animals has come under threat from pests like feral cats and foxes. Fires are also a threat to the area. Indigenous rangers will now work to protect the area. The designation follows four years of discussions between the government, Aboriginal organisations and environmentalists.
