Biodiversity Conservation Strategy

A Biodiversity Conservation Strategy is a key strategic document that outlines how Council and the community can improve biodiversity conservation across the Shire by developing a range of actions that address a wide range of issues impacting on biodiversity.    

It’s been 14 years since the Byron Biodiversity Conservation Strategy 2004(PDF, 8MB) was adopted and over 84% of the Strategy’s actions have been implemented. 

The 2004 Strategy is now under review to:

  • consider if the remaining actions are still relevant
  • allow consideration of contemporary land management actions and what's important to the Community now
  • outline actions required in the next 10-years to continue to protect and restore Byron’s majestic natural environment.

The review will also ensure the Strategy is reflective of current national, state and regional conservation strategies and legislation.

Where are we now?

Engagement with key stakeholders has commenced informing the development of the Strategy. 

We have had some great feedback from the community so far but we want more. Your input is very important to us.

We want to hear from you about what your priorities are when it comes to biodiversity conservation so we can help protect and improve what is important to everyone in the Byron Shire.
