Woodlands Strategy

The Woodlands for Wildlife: ACT Lowland Woodland Conservation Strategy was released in 2004. In 2014, a fact sheet was published looking at highlights from the strategy

In 2017 the ACT's Scientific Committee reviewed the plan and the Conservator of Flora and Fauna prepared a progress report on the plan as required under the Nature Conservation Act 2014.

The ACT's woodlands are exceptional in terms of their size, connectivity, diversity and habitat for threatened species. The 2019 ACT Native Woodland Conservation Strategy will guide the protection, restoration and management of our precious lowland and subalpine woodlands for the next 10 years. Its associated action plans for five threatened species will guide their preservation.

The new strategy replaces the current Lowland Woodland Conservation Strategy, which guided significant progress in the protection, restoration and management of lowland woodlands since 2004.
