Great Eastern Ranges Initiative
OzGREEN has worked to connect landscapes through our involvement in the Great Eastern Ranges Initiative, a continental scale wildlife connectivity program. As lead partner of the Hunter Regional Partnership we work across the Hunter Valley linking up isolated patches of bushland. This facilitates the safe movement of species across the landscape in response to changing climatic conditions.Great Eastern Ranges Initiative
