Urban Ecology Programs
Council currently manages approximately 6 hectares of remnant native vegetation across 12 main sites, and we are successfully supporting critically endangered Eastern Suburbs Baskia Scrub and other threatened species on multiple sites. Through our active management of remnant vegetation and extensive ecological restoration programs we provide valuable habitat to local animals, enhance our limited greenspace and support our coastal and marine ecosystems, which are rich in biodiversity.
Council will continue to engage with our community to enhance our urban ecosystems by providing opportunities to participate in restoratiion, and delivering guidance and support for improving habitat on private land. We will protect our canopy trees and increase local greening to deliver cooling and improved habitat connectivity for our local biodiversity in a changing climate
