Cross Regional Victorian Alpine Peatland Protection Project

The Cross-Regional Victorian Alpine Peatland Protection - North East is a 5-year project that serves to protect and increase the abundance of alpine peatlands.

Alpine Peatlands, or Alpine Sphagnum Bogs and Associated Fens, are an endangered ecological community listed under the EPBC Act (1999) that are crucial for providing habitat and for modulating water flow and maintaining the hydrology of surrounding environments.

This five-year, cross-regional project is coordinated by the Victorian Alpine Peatlands Project Coordinating Committee (VAPCC) and delivered in collaboration across three CMA regions (North East, East Gippsland and West Gippsland) with Parks Victoria.

Border residents hoping to make their gardens more hospitable environments for endangered wildlife can now get information specific to the region.

Wodonga Urban Landcare Network has produced a coffee table book 'Habitat Gardens of Albury-Wodonga' to inspire and educate residents on how to make their gardens more wildlife friendly.
