Great Eastern Ranges Initiative
'A continental-scale lifeline to engage people with nature'
The Great Eastern Ranges Initiative is a globally significant and internationally recognised program that will help people, plants and animals adapt to future environmental threats by maintaining, improving and reconnecting 'islands' of natural vegetation along the great eastern ranges
. These ranges are 2800 km long and extend from the Australian Alps north of Melbourne, Victoria to the Atherton Tablelands to the west and north of Cairns in far north Queensland.
DECCW will work with a wide range of voluntary partners to improve the conservation management and connectivity of these natural areas.
