Project Overview

Georges River Council has partnered with Total Earth Care to undertake a Biodiversity Study of the entire Georges River Local Government Area (LGA). The Biodiversity Study will provide an encompassing assessment of the current biodiversity values across the entire LGA. This study aims to identify areas of high biodiversity value and importance to the LGA to ensure its protection.

We thank you for your contribution to date in sharing your knowledge and experience of biodiversity in your neighbourhood through the questionnaire and pinning your observations.

Your input will contribute to the results of the Biodiversity Study and help guide our field survey which includes the assessment of native plant communities and their condition, assessment of fauna habitat and targeted surveys for threatened plants and animals.

A webinar for key stakeholders and community groups engaged on the project was conducted on the 26th November at 6pm. The webinar provides an overview on the project and will enable discussions by key groups. This has been recorded and is available for viewing.

Ecologists from Total Earth Care have completed field surveys around the LGA.

The Biodiversity Study is now being finalised.


Consultation concluded

Thank you for giving us your input by pinning your observations on the biodiversity map and filling in the questionnaire. We have loved hearing from you about areas that you think are important to support our native plants and animals, any plant or animal sightings of importance and other comments or suggestions.
