The video promotes the important role of the Cobaw Biolink in enhancing connectivity between Mount Macedon and the Cobaw Range on both private and public land.
The video aims to engage landholders and residents in the Macedon Ranges and make them aware that their contribution, no matter how big or small, is environmentally vital. Landholders can help contribute to the biolink through enhancing waterways, undertaking weed and pest control, protecting remnant vegetation, and revegetation and encouraging native grasslands on their properties.
Protecting existing high quality native vegetation and creating connectivity in the biolink will help native plants and animals adapt to climate change. Spotlight surveys on habitat-rich roadsides round Newham found more animals present in the Cobaw Biolink than during similar surveys on Mount Macedon.
The video has been produced by Newham Landcare, with thanks for funding support from Macedon Ranges Shire Council and Melbourne Water. It is a contribution to the on-line version of the Macedon Ranges Sustainability Festival at https://mrsg.org.au/environment
