By focusing attention on the plight of our threatened animals and plants, Council aims to encourage greater community support and hands-on involvement to prevent further losses of Australia's unique natural heritage.
The profiles have been developed to help build awareness of which animals and their supporting habitats are unique and special to Wingecarribee Shire.
