We are pleased to announce the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Zoos Victoria in relation to the management of our conservation property at Telopea Downs.
Together, we share a commitment to a positive working relationship as both parties explore the opportunities and direction for the Telopea Downs Nature Haven project.
Both parties will work towards enhancing the property for the threatened Mallee Bird Community and other threatened species, in alignment with Zoos Victoria’s Fighting Extinction program and Wildlife Conservation Master Plan (2019-2024), and the Victorian Government’s Protecting Victoria’s Environment - Biodiversity 2037 Plan.
Partnership provides new opportunities
The partnership allows us to continue improving habitat on our property with the guidance of Zoos Victoria, and allows Zoos Victoria the opportunity to conduct monitoring and further research on our property’s unique Mallee flora and fauna.
“Having this long-term partnership allows us to make evidence-based decisions using the expertise from Zoos Victoria. We, in turn, are providing an important area of Mallee habitat that Zoos Victoria can study for threatened species of interest. It’s a win-win for both parties.”Dr Steve Enticott, Co-Director of Carbon Landscapes
We are so pleased to have partnered with Zoos Victoria, and we look forward to a fruitful working relationship for years to come.
