Conserving Brimbank’s natural habitat

Summary

Council is making progress towards increasing resilience within Brimbank’s landscape and assisting in the long-term survival of local species.

The Brimbank Habitat Connectivity Plan 2018–2023 was endorsed at the 17 April 2018 Ordinary Council Meeting, with the goal of improving and conserving our natural areas and native fauna populations.

Mayor of Brimbank, Cr Margaret Giudice says it is important we retain our natural habitats and provide opportunities for our community to engage with and enjoy nature.

“The Brimbank Habitat Connectivity Plan 2018-2023 prioritises actions for conservation land management and habitat improvement where it will most benefit indigenous flora and fauna.

“As a responsive Council, we are committed to creating a more sustainable Brimbank and ensuring biodiversity resilience in a changing climate,” Cr Giudice said.

The Brimbank Habitat Connectivity Plan 2018-2023 was developed in consultation with the community and conservation volunteer groups.

The goals and actions within the plan align with Commonwealth, State and Regional strategy and policy for biodiversity conservation.
