NSW Murray Biodiversity Management Plan
About the NSW Murray Biodiversity Management Plan
The Draft NSW Murray Biodiversity Management Plan (draft Murray BMP) has been developed to maximise the benefits to biodiversity from available limited resources in the Murray Catchment. It is designed to be a helpful guide for groups and individuals who have an interest in biodiversity management.
It is not a compulsory guide and does not restrict or change what people choose to do on their land.
The draft Murray BMP:
provides the user with descriptive information and maps that define biodiversity values at a range of scales from the property or farm scale to a regional scale across the catchment
presents priority investment area maps where biodiversity will benefit from management and restoration of native vegetation
presents other maps showing potential areas for management of threatened and significant species, and where the community have identified important sites and assets with biodiversity, economic, cultural, spiritual and recreational values.
The draft Murray BMP has been developed in partnership between the Murray Catchment Management Authority and OEH, with community and expert input, under the guidance of a steering committee of community representatives.
