“All the water that will ever be is, right now.” - National Geographic
Urban bushland is bushland remaining in the built up areas of our towns and cities and in areas influenced by, or likely to be influenced by, urbanisation.
These precious areas of bush are irreplaceable, and have many environmental and social functions.
The flora and fauna of our region are recognised as some of the most diverse in the world, with many endemic species.
To keep this biodiversity we must protect our remaining bushland and wetlands and ensure they are properly managed for conservation.
Western Australia’s population is heavily concentrated in the south-west, an internationally recognised biodiversity hotspot.
We have pockets of significant native bushland occurring throughout our urban areas that provide valuable habitat and protection to our many endemic and localised species.
