Landscape ecology

The Nature Conservation Project provides technical advice and identifies priorities and programs for conserving, managing and restoring native species, populations and ecological systems across the South East landscape. A core part of the project is ensuring that regional and state-wide projects, policies and plans appropriately incorporate the biodiversity needs of species and ecosystems of the region.

In line with the management action targets of our regional NRM Plan, this project includes:

  • improving native vegetation
  • managing Ramsar wetlands
  • managing priority habitats
  • managing threatened species
  • improving habitat connectivity
  • involving primary producers
  • increasing community awareness
  • supporting biodiversity on private land.
