Urban Habitat Appeal
This Southern Brown Bandicoot and Growling Grass Frog are in danger of losing their home.
Once some of the most common animals in Victoria, they are now endangered.
Right now, tiny pockets of intact habitat on the edges of Melbourne, where this bandicoot and other more endangered creatures live, are under threat.
The Golden Sun Moth and Striped Legless Lizard are unusual and unique grassland creatures that are also threatened.
So what's the threat?
This means that some of the last remaining intact native grasslands that provide habitats for numerous threatened creatures (to be precise, 25 animals and 32 plants in these areas have been listed as nationally significant) may be lost to us.
Many of the proposed conservation areas will be multi-use and provide park land for people, improve water quality or are already flood prone.
You can help protect the native grasslands and other high conservation habitats that these species rely upon by making a donation today.
Your support will help us:
- Protect high conservation habitat areas within the existing Melbourne growth area by making them part of the urban conservation parks network.
- Protect endangered species and habitat in urban growth areas.
- Deliver on promises for new grassland reserves outside the urban growth areas.
- Make submissions to regional conservation and biodiversity plans over the next 6-12 months to maximise preservation of native grasslands and wildflower meadows.
