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.
It's important that natural environments in Moreland are protected, so over the coming months we'll be working with the community to prepare a Nature Plan. This Plan will guide Moreland's natural resource management over the next decade and beyond.
We'll be talking with the community about priority areas for protecting significant vegetation, restoring habitat corridors and ways to connect pockets of native vegetation across Moreland. We'll also be talking about how to work with residents and private landowners to enhance nature in urbanised environments.
