The Great Eastern Ranges
A continental scale connectivity conservation program, aiming to connect landscapes along the Great Eastern Ranges from Western Victoria to Far North Queensland.
The Great Easter Ranges was a partnership of over 240 organisations working across 12 regions. OzGREEN was involved since 2007 as lead partner of the Hunter Regional Partnership.
Working alongside project partners Muswellbrook Council, Tom Farrell Institute for the Environment, Conservation Volunteers Australia and many others, we have revegetated and restored over 1000ha of land across the Hunter Valley.
These areas are designed to act as "stepping stones" linking up fragmented areas of bushland across the region, assisting with the movement of fauna across the landscape and providing habitat for critically endangered species such as the Regent Honeyeater.
