Brief description

Only growing in a niche environment under a unique set of environmental conditions, with the right soil type, position in the landscape, climate and water availability, alpine peatland is a highly fragmented and endangered ecological community.

Home to a rich and diverse range of species including the Alpine Tree Frog, Baw Baw Frog, Alpine Water Skink and Alpine Bog Skink, the EPBC Act-listed Alpine Sphagnum Bogs and Associated Fens ecological community of the Mt Baw Baw Alpine region are, fortunately, in better condition than most.

The project will improve the functional health and connectivity of the ecological community by implementing threat management activities prioritised through the draft Victorian Alpine Peatlands Spatial Action Plan and a comprehensive INFFER analysis.

Over a five year period, the WGCMA will work in partnership with Parks Victoria, NECMA, EGCMA, GBCMA, Gunaikurnai Land and Waters Aboriginal Corporation, DELWP and the Australian Government to address key threats to alpine peatlands.
