Victoria's Biodiversity Strategy was released in 1997 and fulfiled commitments in the National Strategy for the Conservation of Biodiversity and requirements under Victoria's Flora and Fauna Guarantee Act 1998.
The Strategy described the legal, economic and social framework for the conservation of biodiversity. It outlined the challenges and ways forward and highlighted ways to integrate biodiversity conservation into actions, thinking and way of life, in which the community is already making a major contribution, and to do more, including correcting past mistakes.
The Strategy also set out the objectives and management approaches to be used focusing on living assets and the biodiversity condition in all of Victoria's bioregions. To view the historic Strategy click here.
