Our priorities for increased protection are:

  • coastal waters
  • the great forests of the Central Highlands and East Gippsland
  • the central west forests such as Wombat (near Daylesford), Wellsford (near Bendigo), Mt Cole and the Pyrenees
  • the western and urban grasslands on Melbourne‚Äôs fringe.

Covenants and direct purchase should also be increased to better conserve nature on private land.
