Biodiversity Conservation

Biodiversity is the life support system of our planet. It provides many important social and economic benefits. We depend on healthy ecosystems for the air we breathe, the food we eat and the water we drink. Wetlands filter sediment and pollutants from water and trees and plants absorb carbon, an important process to help reduce global warming.  Bacteria and fungi also breakdown organic material giving us healthy and productive soils.

The connection between healthy ecosystems and a sustainable future is widely recognised. Our region contains many significant areas of outstanding natural value and our biodiversity programs are designed to protect and enhance these natural assets.
