Trees and Biodiversity

Biodiversity is the variety of all life forms on earth, from the smallest plants to the largest animals. Protecting biodiversity and land resources is important in sustaining natural processes, such as nutrient cycling, soil formation and pollination. It is essential for the survival of healthy ecosystems.

Where is Biodiversity Found?

The Georges River area has a network of over 300 parks, reserves and bushland areas. These areas are home to a variety of native animals including: possums, wallabies, flying foxes, lizards, birds and fish. It is also home to many species of threatened flora and fauna.
 
As Australian bushland has diminished through increased urbanisation, many native animals have lost their natural homes. As a result, wildlife occasionally seeks sanctuary in homes, backyards and community spaces. Council ensures that any local activity has minimal impact on local native and vulnerable species.
