The Great Eastern Ranges is a continental scale connectivity conservation program, aiming to connect landscapes along the Great Eastern Ranges from Western Victoria to Far North Queensland. It is a partnership of over 240 organisations working across 12 regions. OzGREEN has been 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.
