Established in September 2021, the Gippsland Threatened Species Action Group is a group of passionate individuals with an interest in the conservation of threatened species in Bass Coast. Potential projects include east-west Biolinks between Inverloch and Wonthaggi along coastal and inland routes, collection of basic data and monitoring koala numbers and population, and community education, along with much more.
Enhancing biodiversity and resilience for koala and threatened species habitat across Bass Coast and South Gippsland.
To enhance koala and threatened species habitat from Westernport Bay east to Corner Inlet, including the foothills of the Strzeleckis. This will be achieved by the identification of potential north- south, and especially east-west biolinks between existing suitable habitat on public land and private land (with the landholders’ agreement). Areas/linkages will then be prioritised for revegetation/supplementary planting and funding sought from appropriate funding bodies. Partnerships will also be established with traditional owners, conservation and Landcare groups and relevant Government agencies.
