Your say on biodiversity in Glen Eira
Protecting our native species requires the combined effort of everyone in Glen Eira, so we’re calling on you to help.
Biodiversity has wide reaching economic, environmental, and health and wellbeing benefits that support our ecosystems and protect our quality of life.
While Glen Eira has been urbanised for many decades, there are still some local places where native indigenous species have survived. When managed in the right way, our urban environment can both protect and promote biodiversity.
Why are we planning for biodiversity?
We want to expand the work we are already doing to protect our native environment, and increase our community’s knowledge and efforts to protect and promote our biodiversity, now and into the future.
How to get involved
You can get involved and share your thoughts through our survey, workshops and engagement activities. Your views on biodiversity will help us develop actions in our first Biodiversity Plan.
Come along to a range of nature walks, citizen science programs, workshops, and school activities being held. These activities will support further conversations with our community about our native species and how to protect them.
