    Event description

    Have your say on the future of Biodiversity Protection in South Gippsland

    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.  77% of the remaining remnant vegetation and wildlife habitat in South Gippsland is located on private land which is why everyone’s participation is crucial.

    We’re holding a Community Information Session on Wednesday 5 June from 10am to 12noon at the Korumburra Community Centre.  It's not essential, but please feel free to bring your laptop/tablet along to the session for entering feedback. Paper feedback forms will also be available.

    The feedback period for the BPP draft plan will open on Tuesday 28 May and run until Wednesday 12 June. The draft document and an online link to provide feedback will be available on SGLN's website (sgln.net.au/bpp) after Tuesday 28 May.

    Jillian Staton, Chair of the South Gippsland Landcare Network says: "We’ve taken a collaborative approach to developing the BPP because we want everyone in the community to be able to play a part in protecting our natural assets, and to ensure we are all working towards the same goals.".

    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. 

    “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,” says Jillian.
