Immediate Support For Victoria’s Wildlife And Biodiversity

The Andrews Labor Government is taking immediate action to support Victoria’s bushfire impacted wildlife and biodiversity with a $17.5 million initial rescue package to assist in recovery efforts.

The recent bushfires have had an unprecedented impact on Victoria’s flora and fauna. The funding announced today will support a range of urgent actions necessary to give our treasured plants and animals the best chance of survival – including critical habitat restoration, predator and pest control, and immediate salvage operations.

It will be targeted to those species most at risk, including the Brush-tailed Rock Wallaby – Victoria’s most endangered mammal – Long-footed Potaroo and Large Brown Tree Frog.

It’s estimated 185 of Victoria’s species, many of them rare and threatened, have already been impacted by the fire emergency.
