Friends of Grasslands

Filed under Directory Listing

Description of Services:

Grasslands and grassy woodlands were the most extensive vegetation community in Australia two hundred years ago.

Today, some grassland communities in south-eastern Australia are more threatened than Australian rainforests.  Friends of Grasslands aims to:

  • build on existing data, systems and expertise, to improve knowledge and understanding of, and support for, grassy ecosystems by communities, industries and governments

  • identify threats to grassy ecosystems, and influence decisions relating to protection and management

  • improve management of grassy ecosystems on public and private land, including through better allocation of resources and integration of effort

  • focus on holistic approaches, and functioning landscapes and ecosystems

  • build the skills and participation of members to be an effective and sustainable group

  • assist in restoring grassy ecosystems through active intervention

  • broaden adoption of grassy ecosystem species in horticulture and landscaping.

FoG, as Friends of Grasslands is known, produces newsletters, lobbies government, organises workshops and field visits, produces a website and can help to identify and manage important grassland ecosystems and species
