Burra Landcare aims to enhance the biodiversity of the Burra and Urila areas and surrounds through the protection and enhancement of the natural environment.

The Burra and Urila area contains a number of ecological communities, including grassy box woodlands and grassland communities, which are classed as Regionally Endangered in the Murrumbidgee/Molonglo catchments.  There is less than 10% of this type of vegetation left.  Our projects aim to address the following issues:

  • Enhancing local indigenous fauna and flora and avoiding loss of biodiversity
  • Preserving and enhancing remnant grassy woodland
  • Establishing linking wildlife corridors
  • Raising community awareness & education about sustainable land management e.g.
    • responsible grazing techniques
    • erosion and weed control
    • caring for native ecosystems.
