Trust For Nature

Conservation Objective 6

Enhance and protect habitat quality

  • The focal landscapes include nearly half of the high quality native vegetation found on private land in Victoria
  • Most high-quality vegetation on private land occurs on land adjacent to large protected areas on public land
  • Native vegetation on private land in Victoria has lower habitat quality than native vegetation on public land (VEAC 2010), making habitat improvement a key biodiversity action for private land, and
  • Native vegetation on Trust for Nature covenants and properties has higher habitat quality than private-land vegetation overall.
