Local Biodiversity Strategy

We are seeking community feedback on the development of our Local Biodiversity Strategy.

The Strategy will identify and prioritise key environmental assets for protection and will include a Local Biodiversity Action Plan.

The Strategy aims to optimise community engagement, advocacy and partnership opportunities and create a culture of stewardship towards to the natural environment.


The Strategy will:

  • Identify and prioritise environmental assets for protection.
  • Map natural areas within the Shire identifying key habitat linkages and corridors.
  • Integrate biodiversity considerations into all areas of Shire business and decision-making.
  • Include actions to support private landholders in protecting natural areas.
  • Recognise the importance of the region as part of the International Southwest Biodiversity Hotspot and Busselton to Augusta National Biodiversity Hotspot.
  • Incorporate a Local Biodiversity Action Plan to guide our priorities and decision-making over the next 10 years.
