Protecting native flora and fauna


We own a lot of land in the central Gippsland region, and work to ensure the protection of native flora and fauna.

Our largest parcel of land, Dutson Downs, has a diverse landscape. Five threatened species have been found there and we work with agencies and interested groups to study and protect them. The species are the New Holland Mouse, Wellington Mint-bush, Trailing Hop-bush, Dwarf Kerrawang and the Green and Golden Bell Frog. We also manage biodiversity programs at Moondarra and Sunny Creek.
