31,000 hectares of Southern Highlands land to be deemed protected habitat

Mr West said the protection of habitats was an important issue in the Southern Highlands, particularly as more people seek to move to the area. He welcomed the announcement of the new protected areas as a step in the right direction and said it was “great news” for the shire. “This shire is in a very crucial position in terms of the Great Dividing Range, which is the major habitat corridor that runs down the east coast,” he said.

Environmental community organisation WinZero has been campaigning against the development on behalf of the protected inhabitants of the site – koalas, endangered greater gliders, and endangered micro-bats.
