3. Restoring Connectivity in the Tullaroop Catchment

The Tullaroop Catchment needs restoration work to improve economic, environmental and cultural qualities of this important area.​ 

It will re-connect fragmented habitat and waterways in the Loddon River’s Upper Catchment. The multiple benefits include improving biodiversity, sustainable land management and connecting local communities with their natural environment, as well as improving water quality and security. A focus of the project is cultural heritage, incorporating indigenous values in both the planning and the management of the waterways.

The Tullaroop Catchment project will again highlight the value of the Catchment Partners Forum in the way it will connect with people across the focus area to solve shared problems – building on past successes and learning from each other. ​

This project involves a series of medium scaled works focussed on revegetation, restoration and modified land management practices.​
