Bushland & wildlife

Over 50 native creatures from tiny lizards to flying foxes call our stunning corner of the world home. Our 5.8 hectares of coastal native vegetation is squeezed between development and the ocean.

Our aim is to continue to improve the quality of these bushland areas to maintain a healthy coast and provide habitat for the local wildlife.

By improving conditions for priority vegetation sites, we hope to ensure precious natural bushland sites and endangered species are not lost. This will be achieved through:

  • bush regeneration programs
  • buffer planting
  • reducing weed species and
  • reducing stormwater pollution into vegetation.

By doing this we also want to make a difference in the future and ensure at least 40 per cent of local priority vegetation spots are in good condition by 2030. Your garden at home is important too, it can provide important connectivity for wildlife to move around.
