Moreland has a remarkable diversity of indigenous flora and fauna as well as sites with remnant vegetation, especially along our creeks and waterways.
These sites provide critical habitat for many fauna species including reptiles, native birds and possums. They are also sites that are historically and culturally significant to Moreland, contributing to the character of our landscape and our sense of place.
To better protect and enhance nature in the City, Council developed a Nature Plan with a vision to support a more diverse, connected and resilient natural environment where native birds and animals thrive and where residents explore, value and connect with nature.
Following two phases of community consultation, Council considered and endorsed the Moreland Nature Plan in August 2020 and we are now busy with implementation of the key actions.
