City of Gold Coast has developed a range of maps that detail the vegetation of the Gold Coast and highlight areas of ecological significance to inform Our Natural City Strategy.
The maps identify areas of remnant and significant vegetation, vegetation communities and habitat for rare and threatened species and wildlife corridors. They also assign land conservation values so we can establish conservation priorities and track vegetation and habitat loss.
The Gold Coast City Vegetation Community Representation Report identifies the 2009 and historic representation of each vegetation type within the conservation network, gaps in representation and expert panel-agreed targets to ensure adequate representation for each vegetation type.
The Remnant and Regrowth Vegetation Cover Mapping Report summarises the extent and distribution of native vegetation types across the Gold Coast local government area as of 2011.
