South Gippsland Landcare Network has developed a Biodiversity Protection Plan (BPP) for South Gippsland to guide a coordinated response for improving the natural environment in the region. We are seeking community and stakeholder feedback on the final draft.  

Please join us and share your feedback on the BPP at a Community Information Session on Wednesday 5 June from 10am to 12noon at the Korumburra Community Centre.

In 2021, South Gippsland Landcare Network identified the need for a BPP and brought together a broad cross-section of the community, from individuals and small community groups to large organisations, to discover what can and needs to be done to protect South Gippsland’s natural environment.  The BPP is an ambitious 10-year plan that identifies improvements needed to protect biodiversity in South Gippsland. At the community information session we will describe the process we’ve used to develop the BPP, its structure and how we intend for it to operate in the future. You will be able to review the actions contained in the BPP and discuss them one-on-one with our staff and volunteers. We’d love to see you there and hear your feedback! If you can’t attend the Community Information Session, there will be opportunities to provide your feedback online. A link to the draft BPP and online form will be emailed closer to the start of the feedback period which will run from Tuesday 28 May to Wednesday 12 June.
We are extremely excited to be presenting the BPP to the public and thank everyone who has participated in our workshops and surveys, contributed data and reviewed drafts of the BPP. It has been a long process, and we are grateful to everyone for their time and support.
