Flora & Fauna

Yellow Tail Cockatoo1558 species of flora and 370 species of fauna have been identified in the Shire. 40 species of the flora and 42 species of fauna species have been classified as endangered or threatened.

The Wingecarribee Biodiversity Strategy
modelled the potential habitat of threatened species.


The model showed that all the rare flora species in the Shire are associated with either Sandstone or swamp vegetation. With regards to fauna habitats, the model indicated that there is a potential for the occurrence of at least two threatened species to occur in every vegetation community. Dry Nattai Escarpment Forest was identified as having potential habitat for as many as 15 of the threatened fauna species found in the Shire.
