The Western Port Woodlands is a spectacular patchwork of sandy coastal forest. It’s home to some of Victoria’s most endangered wildlife.
And the former Holden Proving Ground is its largest and most intact remnant woodland – an important piece of the Western Port Woodlands puzzle.
Our report found these connected patches of bush along the Bass Coast are critical for many threatened and endangered native plants, animals and fungi like the Southern Brown Bandicoot, Tea-tree Fingers fungus and Strzelecki Gum.
The tragedy? This wildlife corridor is under threat from industrial sand mining. The opportunity? The Proving Ground site is up for sale.
Call on the Victorian Government to purchase the Proving Ground and make sure it’s protected forever.
