Biodiversity corridors

Biodiversity corridors are areas of vegetation that allow animals to travel from one patch of native forest to another.

We have worked hard to establish corridors in our Mount Lofty Ranges and Green Triangle forest estates over many years, linking areas of isolated native forest with strips of revegetation for the benefit of our natural environment.
