We are making the leap into landscape regeneration in a bid to improve the health of your Yarra, its ecosystems and the important ecology that it supports.
The management of our landscapes can determine whether they contribute to or combat the impacts of climate change. On the verge of the United Nations Decade on Ecosystem Restoration (2021-2030) we have been developing a ‘Regeneration Guide’. This Guide outlines the locations of our work, our philosophy in implementing regeneration along the banks of your Yarra, and how we intend to achieve this.
Through the approach of regeneration, we want a Yarra that can provide robust ecological processes that support all living things, big and small. What does robust mean? It’s the ability for ecological processes to be self-sustaining and not require much, if any, human intervention to function. Regeneration will allow the landscape to supply services that cannot be effectively replicated or replaced by human technology, such as photosynthesis, and incorporating more carbon into natural cycles.
Regeneration is an outcome that we cannot afford to ignore. It is an action that is vital to minimising, and beginning to reverse, our negative effects on the environment and the planet. It will allow for productive landscapes of rich biodiversity, functionality, lots of life and ecosystems that are healthy and renewed.
Now that you have more of an understanding about why regeneration is so important, we want to share with you a little bit of how we plan to do this for your Yarra.
We’re planting trees, we’re weeding, we’re looking at areas along the Yarra Corridor and assessing how we can help give the landscape what it needs.Stay updated on this project
