Landscape Connectivity

"Healthy, functioning landscapes have strong connections between areas of habitat. A major challenge to biodiversity and ecological health across Australia is the loss of connectivity and the resulting fragmentation of natural habitats.

Wildlife corridors are a means of rebuilding connectivity by preserving and restoring links between patches of native plant and animal habitat, waterways and other features of the landscape.

Tussock Talk

The Serrated Tussock Working Party for NSW and ACT, in partnership with Mid-Western Regional Council, has been successful in securing funding under the Noxious Weeds Grants to employ a project officer to lead a coordinated effort against this highly invasive weed.

The project is the first stage in a 5 year plan to coordinate better district and regional programs so that control efforts increase in their effectiveness and there is a decrease in the impact of serrated tussock.


Launch of the Molonglo River Rescue Action Plan

The Molonglo River Rescue Action Plan details how to rehabilitate the Molonglo River - from Captains Flat in NSW right through to its confluence with the Murrumbidgee in north-western ACT. The Plan will officially be launched with the help of year 2 students from Ainslie Primary School at Molonglo Reach opposite Duntroon, ACT. Hard copies of the Plan will be available on the day or can be collected from the Molonglo Catchment Group office in Queanbeyan.
