  • Develop and implement conservation/management plans for key threatened and iconic species
  • Plan and deliver priority projects that support improved fauna movement
  • Continue to plan and deliver opportunities to connect with nature through the council managed environment reserve network and associated environmental visitor centres
  • Deliver community conservation partnerships, education and stewardship programs
  • Develop and implement a vegetation offsets management and delivery program.
