The land abutting Victoria's streams, rivers and creeks is critical to the health not just of our waterways but also the frogs, fish, birds and other forms of life found there.
In the past we have failed to protect riparian land from damaging uses such as uncontrolled stock grazing, but in October 2009 the Victorian Government had a chance to turn this situation around through the creation of new "Conservation Licences".
Sadly, it failed to do so.
