Bringing the Bush Back
Widespread land clearing in New South Wales has significantly impacted local ecosystems. This degradation and loss of plant species threatens the food and habitat on which other native species rely. Clearing allows weeds and invasive animals to spread, affects greenhouse gas emissions and leads to soil erosion and salinity.
Located in Western New South Wales, this project works with landholders to regenerate and protect native vegetation. The area harbours a number of indigenous plant species which provide important habitat and nutrients for native wildlife. By erecting fencing and actively managing invasive species, the project avoids emissions caused by clearing and achieves key environmental and biodiversity benefits.

Scenes from the project
Protecting the irreplaceable
Establishing wildlife corridors on previously cleared land allows animals to move across the landscape, accessing food and a chance to boost populations.
