Biodiversity Response Planning is a collaborative approach to encourage everybody to work together and align biodiversity actions to support the goals of the 20-year biodiversity plan Protecting Victoria’s Environment – Biodiversity 2037.

Biodiversity (the variety of different plants, animals, and microbes that form ecosystems) plays an extremely important role in our lives and preserving it is a key challenge facing society. Aside from making nature beautiful to be in and explore, biodiversity has a crucial role in providing climate stability, food security, medicine, quality habitat for our native animals, ecosystem resilience, protecting water resources, breaking down and absorbing pollution, and many other valuable services.

We are asking the community to help us identify biodiversity values. priority species and potential threats.

The Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning will collate existing biodiversity knowledge and information about activities, identify gaps and possibilities collectively, and then discuss and identify priorities for biodiversity actions to address the Biodiversity 2037 targets for each landscape.

The biodiversity options and priorities developed through Biodiversity Response Planning will be able to inform other planning processes (such as Regional Catchment Strategy reviews, development of new Forest Management plans and Conservation Actions Plans etc).
