Victoria has a new 20-year plan to stop the decline of our native plants and animals.
The Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change announced the new plan at the 15th World Congress on Public Health, acknowledging the intrinsic link between a healthy natural environment and healthy communities.
Protecting Victoria’s Environment – Biodiversity 2037 aims to encourage more Victorians to value and protect nature and help them to connect with and enjoy their natural environment. It will also help drive action from local businesses, government and people to help to stop the decline of our biodiversity through investment, improved decision making and planning, and through volunteer action.
Many of you may have participated in the consultations leading up to the plan and it is exciting to have it released this week. It sets a new direction for how Victorians ensure our natural environment is cared for.
