Landcare on the Mornington Peninsula

Landcare is a grass-roots organisation formed by people interested in protecting and restoring their local environment and contributing to sustainable landscapes. Run by local volunteers, Landcare involves more than 4000 groups across Australia working together to do something practical to protect Australia’s unique environment. Landcare activities include:

  • Regionally coordinated environmental weed and pest animal control (e.g. foxes and rabbits)
  • Connecting biolinks and habitat corridors
  • Protecting habitat and waterways
  • Revegetation
  • Field days and workshops

Locally, eleven Landcare groups make up the Mornington Peninsula Landcare Network. The network was established to assist local Landcare groups with large-scale projects, collaboration on cross-boundary issues and developing biolinks across the landscape.
