Problem: Destroying an Endemic Grassland and Wildlife Corridor
The Victorian State Government proposes to sell a large (0.61 hectares) vacant block of land in Dumbarton St, Reservoir (Melbourne, Australia) to developers for housing. This land is owned by the Victorian State Government, allocated to VicRoads and was set aside decades ago for a proposed freeway. This land has not been used for more than 50 years. It contains endemic plants, is part of a wildlife corridor and also provides open grassland for hunting for various bird species, especially endemic birds of prey, such as falcons. I believe this land should be managed as a native grassland providing the local community with a wonderful opportunity to engage with and value nature, which is a goal and priority of the Victorian Government's Biodiversity Plan.
