Moreland has a remarkable diversity of indigenous flora and fauna as well as sites with remnant vegetation, especially along our creeks and waterways.
These sites provide critical habitat for many fauna species including reptiles, native birds and possums. They are also sites that are historically and culturally significant to Moreland, contributing to the character of our landscape and our sense of place.
To better protect and enhance nature in the City, Council is developing a Nature Plan with a vision to support a more diverse, connected and resilient natural environment where native birds and animals thrive and where residents explore, value and connect with nature.
Following two phases of community consultation, we’ve been working on a draft, identifying a number of ideas to manage the natural environment over next 4 years and beyond.
The Nature Plan is being presented to Moreland Council for consideration at the August 2020 Council meeting.
