A historic opportunity for Manyana’s wildlife

An opportunity has just arisen to permanently protect a precious pocket of threatened species habitat in Manyana on the south coast from developers.

An opportunity has just arisen to permanently protect a precious pocket of threatened species habitat in Manyana on the south coast from developers.

The government is on the hunt for a block of forest to replace 21 hectares that has been carved out of the Conjola National Park to be cleared for a road upgrade. And it so happens that there is a very precious 21 hectare pocket neighbouring Conjola just outside Manyana that the community has been campaigning to protect from development since 2008!

The government must replace this loss to the National Park estate with other land of at least the same size and ecological value. And it so happens that there is a very precious 21 hectare block adjoining Conjola National Park at Manyana that the community has been campaigning to protect from development since 2008!

The bushland consists of critically endangered scrub turpentine forest with numerous hollow bearing trees providing vital habitat for endangered greater gliders, glossy black cockatoos and swift parrots. And, with 95% of the area burnt during the Black Summer fires, it’s providing some of the last habitat in the region for many threatened species. 

This bushland pocket is so important that less than two years ago, then Environment Minister Matt Kean entered into discussions with the local council to buy the block and protect it for good to no avail. This is our chance to finally protect this threatened species habitat from the bulldozers.

The Government must act and finally protect this precious pocket of habitat in Manyana for good.
