Have your say on the Biodiversity Conservation Strategy and Weed Management Strategy

Thank you to everyone who participated in the initial consultation in 2018. We now have a draft Biodiversity Conservation Strategy and draft Weed Management Strategy for your review and feedback

The new Biodiversity Conservation Strategy will provide clear, long-term strategic direction to conserve biodiversity on both private and public land in Cardinia Shire, while working in partnership with the community. 

Biodiversity is the variety of species of plants, animals and microorganisms, their genes, and the ecosystems they make up, often considered in relation to a particular area.

The strategy will work towards these 3 key goals:  

  • Building resilient plant and animal communities in healthy environments and waterways
  • Fostering healthy community groups that actively value their environment
  • Encouraging property owners to actively contribute to and support biodiversity

The strategy aims to:

  • support all land managers to ensure our natural biodiversity is healthy, valued and actively cared for
  • reduce the endangered status of our threatened species
  • energise and empower our environmental community groups to ensure they are sustainable and their environmental expertise is valued and utilised
  • work towards the sustainable development goals identified by the United Nations 
  • develop an action plan for future Council biodiversity initiatives and programs.
