Protecting Victoria's Environment - Biodiversity 2036

Our natural environment makes Victoria a special place. Our lives are enriched by healthy land and seas, unique plants and animals, recreational spaces and clean water and air. These are essential to many Victorians’ livelihoods, and are not something that we can take for granted.

About the draft plan

Victoria’s environment doesn’t thrive on its own. This is why we are developing a new direction for the management of biodiversity – our native plants and animals – in Victoria.

In 2016, we will develop a twenty-year plan for stopping the decline of Victoria’s biodiversity, called Protecting Victoria's Environment - Biodiversity 2036. Coupled with the Review of the native vegetation clearing regulations and a review of the Flora and Fauna Guarantee Act 1988, we can create a better place for people to visit and for Victorians to call home.

The Victorian Government has worked with key groups to develop the draft plan, and now we need your input and ideas for how together, we can enjoy an environment that is healthy, valued and actively cared for.

There are five key themes of the draft plan. The introduction to the draft plan and these themes are further explored on the following pages - click on an image below to find out more. We want to know what you think. Are we on the right track, and where are the opportunities to work together?
