Rangelands Reflections 19...

3 years ago from Parks Victoria

Location: Rangelands Reflections

The restoration of degraded dry (non-eucalypt) woodlands, grasslands, saltbush mallee, and chenopod shrublands within natural areas of the Victorian Mallee is the largest single restoration project currently being undertaken by Parks Victoria. It is a partnership between Parks Victoria, the Department of Environment and Primary Industries, the Mallee Catchment Management Authority, Trust for Nature (owners of Ned’s Corner Station), and the Commonwealth through the ‘Caring for our Country’ initiative. It is a program that commenced in 1990 and is continuing today, more than 20 years later.

The purpose of this treatise is to document the history of management of the Victorian rangelands particularly since destocking, to evaluate progress towards the goal of landscape restoration, and to guide future management. Are Victoria’s rangelands on the road to recovery, or are they in transition to an altered state?

This document is complemented by a video (above) and still imagery illustrating the management interventions, and the changes to these Mallee landscapes over the course of two decades.
