Natural values project
Ensuring native vegetation is conserved for future generations (part of the Great Ocean Road Renewal Program).
This project is one of four projects funded through the Great Ocean Road Renewal Program. A three-year, $1.35 million program, which will deliver four discrete projects - each critically important in their own right - supported by funding from the Australian Government.
The project includes improving native vegetation communities along our coastal reserves by blitzing weeds over the next three years and boosting native plant species. It entails establishing an experienced conservation team and providing the necessary equipment and strategic guidance afforded by our 2009 Native Vegetation and Weed Action Plan.
