The project will protect critical aquatic habitats, enhance biodiversity values and improve connectivity of regionally significant riparian and biodiversity corridors across the headwaters of the Stanley and Pumicestone catchments in SEQ. This will be achieved through an integrated partnership approach of providing planning and monitoring support and targeted incentives to increase the skills, knowledge and ability of landholders engaged within existing community conservation networks, to undertake strategic on-ground activities which improve the extent, condition and connectivity of riparian areas and ecosystems with high conservation values.
