Natural asset network

A connected natural asset network is vital for the protection of terrestrial, aquatic and marine ecosystems and their ecological processes. It increases the resilience of priority species and ecosystems to natural hazards and provides opportunities for balancing the protection of habitat areas with appropriate nature-based recreation and tourism opportunities.

The city’s connected natural asset network occurs across both private and public land. It has been progressively established over decades through a range of regulatory and voluntary conservation initiatives. These initiatives form the foundation for the existing natural asset network and will be improved and applied to expand the network in the future.

The natural asset network, identified in Our Natural City Strategy, extends across more than 30 per cent of the city’s land area. It highlights the importance of partnerships in delivering outcomes across State Government managed natural areas, City managed natural areas and natural asset management activities on private land.
