Biodiversity Protection Plan for South Gippsland underway

South Gippsland Landcare Network has developed a Biodiversity Protection Plan (BPP) for South Gippsland. This plan aims to guide a coordinated response to improving the natural environment across the region. 

Purpose of the BPP: To guide the development and implementation of collaborative and coordinated action including on-ground works, research, monitoring, education, and engagement to achieve measurable improvements in native biodiversity in South Gippsland over the next 10+ years.

The BPP Vision: That South Gippsland’s native biodiversity is valued, protected, and enhanced through collaborative and coordinated action across government, industry, and community.

Click on the blue button below to read the draft plan. Please note that the plan is contained in section 4 of the document. Sections 1-3 summarise the background research and process for developing the plan. This information is important, and extensive. If you are short on time or keen to get to the plan, feel free to go straight to section 4.

Once you’ve read the document, scroll to the bottom of this page to access the online feedback form.

Have your say on the future of biodiversity protection in South Gippsland at a community information session

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! 

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.

Community Information Session:
When: Wednesday June 5, 10am-12pm.  
Where: Korumburra Community Centre
