This collaborative project sees Parks Victoria, the Green Army and SureGro - TreeMax working together to protect biodiversity by improving soil sustainability and wildlife habitat.

Project Stage - Current
Currently seeking volunteers and/or advice from experienced bird watchers. Field work will be undertaken in SE Queensland, predominantly in the Darling Downs and parts of the Brigalow Belt South Bioregion. Please get in touch with Jessica Miller (via the details on her UQ project page) if you'd like to know more.

Project Stage - Current

Protecting biodiversity on the Green Line

Suregro - Treemax Australia

The Green Line is a 37 kilometre-long strip of former railway line from Koroit to Minhamite in Victoria. It's home to one of the few remnants of critically endangered woody grasslands that once existed in the south-west and there's now a growing movement to protect and rehabilitate this important area.
