Peaks to Plains is a three year project that aims to protect threatened flora and fauna species in the You Yangs Ranges and across the Werribee Plains to Little River through the eradication invasive weeds, rabbits and goats.
The granitic peaks of the You Yang Ranges and surrounding low lying grasslands of the Werribee Plains are some of Victoria’s most ecologically significant landscapes.
Working across the landscape with key organisations and private landholders, the project will enhance 7,000 hectares for species such as the Spiny Rice-flower, Button Wrinklewort, Eastern Barred Bandicoot and the Plains Wanderer.
The project is delivered by the Port Phillip & Westernport CMA in partnership with Parks Victoria and Greater Geelong Council and is supported by the Victorian Government. It runs from 2018 to 2021.
Other project partners include Mt Rothwell Conservation Centre, Wadawurrung Aboriginal Corporation, Melbourne Water, Little River Landcare Group and NatureWest.
