The City of Kalamunda has released a Draft Local Biodiversity Strategy 2020-2030 for public comment.

This strategy will underpin how the City will manage biodiversity in the City for the next ten years.

Our Vision:
The City of Kalamunda and its community will protect, manage and value the local biodiversity to ensure lasting legacy for future generations.

Background

A rigorous, State Government Endorsed process drove the development of the Strategy, including;

  • Review of Local Biodiversity Strategy 2008 indicating strengths and weaknesses in delivering the actions stated.
  • Identification and Mapping of vegetation complexes within the City.
  • Prioritisation, and mapping of City Local Natural Areas based on Ecological criteria.
  • Identification of significant flora and fauna that occurs, or may occur within the City.
  • Identification and mapping of significant linkages within the City to provide corridors for the movement of flora and fauna.

The Draft Local Biodiversity Strategy 2020-2030 is presented in two parts:

PART 1: Summary and Actions.

This section provides a summary of key elements of the strategy. Key aspects of the summary include:

  • Why it is important to conserve biodiversity.
  • What is the status of Biodiversity in the City of Kalamunda.
  • What we can do to improve Biodiversity conservation in the City.

PART 2: Technical Report and appendices

This section provides documentation of the data and methodologies used to inform the Strategy. Key elements of this section include:

  • Biodiversity Assets of the City
  • Threats to Biodiversity
  • Methods used to identify high biodiversity value areas and corridors
  • Biodiversity Conservation Priorities
  • Methods available to conserve biodiversity within the City
