The challenge The Border Ranges and Wollumbin World Heritage areas and the Ballina Coastal Corridor contain populations of, and habitats for, a large number of threatened plant and animal species. These areas and their connecting corridors have the highest concentration of marsupial mammals, birdlife, reptile and frog species in eastern Australia.
Work undertakenThe project undertakes a range of activities that focus on protecting wildlife corridors, threatened species recovery and maintaining native vegetation remnants. Activities focus on improving core biodiversity corridors, improved farm production and on-ground biodiversity success stories. Project works also engage Indigenous organisations through a working on Country approach, and supporting on-ground efforts that address environmental threats and provide skills and capacity building.
Key achievement This project has been an excellent opportunity to draw together diverse landholder groups and build partnerships to increase capacity for natural resource management as well as delivering a range of targeted land management methods to protect and improve core biodiversity corridors.
