Ballarat Wildlife Rehabilitation & Conservation Inc

Welcome to our tree planting project. We are thrilled to embark on this journey with you to enhance the habitat and sustainability of a local property. By planting trees, we are not only creating a more vibrant landscape but also contributing to numerous environmental benefits. Trees provide crucial ecosystem services, such as oxygen production, carbon sequestration, and habitat creation for wildlife. Additionally, they help to mitigate the effects of climate change, improve air and water quality, and reduce erosion. By planting native shrubs and trees we hope to contribute to reforesting an important habitat corridor that is known to have koalas visit. We believe that by partnering together, we can make a positive impact on our environment and for our wildlife for generations to come. We aim to inspire our local community to plant more native trees and shrubs to contribute to our area’s biodiversity. The landowner has seen koalas, echidnas, kangaroos and blue tongue lizards on the property to date. The purpose of the additional native planting is to continue to develop an appropriate biodiversity on the property, to encourage and nourish our local wildlife. The project will engage the community in a positive activity to build an important local ecosystem for the benefit of our wildlife and country.
