Landscape Connectivity Program

The purpose of the Landscape Connectivity Program is to enhance landscape connectivity across the Murray region to improve ecosystem resilience.

Our investment approach combines on-ground works with awareness-raising and capacity-building activities.  Our principles for investment are:

  • Align with Murray Local Strategic Plan and Murray Catchment Action Plan
  • Utilise Murray Biodiversity Management Plan data (native vegetation repair and actively manage priority areas)
  • Plan using a Local Landscape focus
  • Collaborate and partner with the community wherever possible

Revegetation site at BurrumbuttockOur focus over the medium term covers the following priorities:

  • Improving native vegetation extent, condition and configuration in “repair” areas identified in the Murray Biodiversity Management Plan.
  • Focus on the Holbrook, Eastern Riverina and Berriquin-Tuppal-Bullatale Landscapes, matching investment approaches for the different areas to local needs, capacity and other external investment.
