#about us

Our goal is to restore native habitat, connect our communities and create stronger wildlife corridors.

Gippsland Threatened Species Action Group (GTSAG) is a voluntary-run Landcare Group, formed in 2021 to connect landscapes across Southern Gippsland and throughout Bass Coast by restoring native vegetation and creating wildlife corridors.

Our focus is to enhance resilience for threatened species and biodiversity within the landscape by mitigating the impacts of climate change, inappropriate development and human disruption of natural ecosystems.

What do we do?

We work with local communities, Traditional Owners, NGOs, public land managers and private landholders to build collaborative projects and raise awareness for local threatened species facing threats. We utilise expertise within our group to assess, monitor and map threatened flora and fauna to develop project ideas and seek opportunities to achieve positive change.

We regularly conduct visits to private properties and public sites in South Gippsland and Bass Coast inviting community members and landowners to:

View, discuss and participate in revegetation projects.

Provide education about remnant protection and habitat restoration..

Who are our members?

A group of active environmentalists and community volunteers of all ages and varied skills, who passionately care about biodiversity, threatened species and our planet.

Who supports and funds us?

We seek funding from local, state and federal governments, philanthropic and community-based funding sources, including current funding from the Rendere Trust and support from Bass Coast Landcare Network.
