Biodiversity Conservation Strategy

The new Byron Shire Biodiversity Conservation Strategy is now available for comment, and we would love to know what you think.

In Byron Shire, we live in one of the most biologically unique and diverse parts of Australia. But this special environment is fragile, and it is everyone’s responsibility to help protect it. The Biodiversity Conservation Strategy outlines how Council, in partnership with the community, can protect and enhance our unique biodiversity.

To develop the Biodiversity Strategy, we have spoken with local expert ecologists, aboriginal stakeholders, the community and other local councils, to ensure we develop a strategy that reflects good science, facilitates productive partnerships, and provides practical and achievable  actions to help both Council and the community look after our natural environment.

To find out more about the strategy, view it on line and make a submission, please visit Biodiversity Conservation Strategy over on our Your Say Byron Shire website.
