National Wildlife Corridors Plan
Diverse, connected and healthy landscapes that support and sustain biodiversity, communities and wellbeing
Nomination, assessment and declaration of National Wildlife Corridors
It is anticipated that a National Wildlife Corridors Committee will be appointed by the Environment Minister in 2013. The Committee will report to the Land Sector Carbon and Biodiversity Board and provide advice to the Minister on the implementation of the National Wildlife Corridors Plan.
The National Wildlife Corridors Plan will support the development of an enduring network of wildlife corridors. This network will be underpinned by the creation of national wildlife corridors, declared by the Minister for the Environment, to create major links in the Australian landscape to support our biodiversity and its adaptation to a changing climate.
