Protecting and preserving

Mr Chester said that local Landcare groups worked tirelessly to protect and preserve local habitats and had been a large part of the bushfire recovery. "Throughout Gippsland we are very fortunate to have many Landcare groups doing brilliant work, including the mammoth effort as part of the bushfire recovery."

"Regular reviews of the program ensure that Landcare groups are able to continue to remove invasive weeds, tackle feral pest control, create refuges for native species and protect local waterways. I encourage interested Gippslanders to read through the terms of reference and submit their feedback." Mr Chester said.

The public consultation process will close on October 15, 2021. For further information and provide feedback visit the National LandCare website. We would like to express gratitude to Mr Darren Chester MPfor this article.
