Land and Biodiversity

The Goulburn Broken Catchment Management Authority is responsible for providing the strategic direction for land and biodiversity health in the Goulburn Broken catchment.

The Land and Biodiversity Program focuses on the connections between the need for ecosystem resilience and provision of productive land and as a result, healthy and sustainable communities.  Investment in the Catchment’s biodiversity and land health is guided by the Biodiversity Strategy for the Goulburn Broken Catchment, the Goulburn Broken Land Health Statement and other regional, state and national policies and strategies.

Biodiversity Strategy for the Goulburn Broken Catchment

The Biodiversity Strategy for the Goulburn Broken Catchment 2016-2021 is the primary planning document guiding biodiversity initiatives at the regional level. 

Biodiversity assets in the Goulburn Broken

The Goulburn Broken Catchment has a significant component of Austalia's biodiversity, much of which is under threat. The main pressures on Australia’s biodiversity – habitat fragmentation, altered fire regimes, invasive species (both non-native and native), harvesting of species, and climate change – are increasing, and the rate of species decline is not slowing down.

Land and Soil Health

Soils are the lifeblood of the catchment, providing environmental services that give life to flora, fauna and primary production.

Climate Change

The impacts of a changing climate on the Goulburn Broken Catchment’s natural resources and its community present significant threats and opportunities. The Goulburn Broken Catchment Management Authority (CMA) is committed to being proactive in identifying adaptation responses to mitigate any threats, and at the same time work to identify opportunities.

Resources & Publications

There are many things land managers can do to conserve biodiversity. Resources and Publications in this section are designed to help land managers in the Goulburn Broken Catchment.

The Goulburn Broken CMA acknowledges and respects First Nations people and the deep connection they have with their land and waters.

We acknowledge the Yorta Yorta and Taungurung people and their ancestors/forbears as Traditional Owners of the land and waters in the Goulburn Broken Catchment (and beyond). We value our ongoing partnerships with Yorta Yorta Nation Aboriginal Corporation and Taungurung Land and Waters Council for the health of Country and its people.

We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging and acknowledge and recognise the primacy of Traditional Owners obligations, rights and responsibilities to use and care for their traditional lands and waters.
