SCC: Connectivity Across the Landscape

Conduct restoration using a holistic landscape approach to connect habitats/remnants.

Why it is important?

Revegetating to re-instate corridors can help improve landscape connectivity and ecological function and resilience. Revegetation along riparian areas can also benefit waterways, by shading creeks and lowering water temperatures, stabilising banks, improving water quality and shading weeds.

Examples of Local Action

Widen riparian corridor of Murray around Warrami, with revegetation near Kyambul Lagoon.
Conduct drainage management, fire management and revegetation around Blackman Road.
Conduct revegetation and erosion control in straightened section of Curduroy Creek along Hamlin Road.
