Biodiversity Strategy

Our Biodiversity Strategy aims to protect and improve Albury’s unique biodiversity through conservation measures addressing major threats. We developed it in consultation with community stakeholders and it was a key outcome of Albury 2030.

AlburyCity carries out the strategy’s conservation measures on Council land. We encourage other land managers and private landholders to do the same on their land.

In 2016–17 we will be reviewing the Biodiversity Strategy. Community members will have opportunities to contribute to this process, so watch this space!
