Restoring landscapes across the Mount Alexander Region

Biodiversity and Climate Change

Human-induced climate change is having significant impact on biodiversity across the planet.  As well as putting increasing pressure on individual species, it will exacerbate the effects of threatening processes in natural areas such as habitat loss and fragmentation, drought, introduced species, erosion, bushfire and pollution.

Connecting Country’s activities – such as remnant protection, construction of wildlife corridors, control of pest plants and animals, and biodiversity monitoring – all contribute to climate change adaptation, mitigation and a better understanding of its effects. However, there is always more that can be done locally and at larger scales.

By working with people in our community to address the direct and indirect impacts of climate change, we hope to create a robust and healthy local landscape that remains livable for future generations of humans and other species. Click on the following links to find out more.
