The Thin Green Line

The Thin Green Line project straddles the diverse landscapes of the spectacular Illawarra Escarpment which, in terms of forest connectivity, is at its thinnest point between Newcastle and the Victorian Border.

The project provides landholders with funding assistance, to support tree planting, weed & feral animal control training and Land for Wildlife registration. More information about the project and how it works to support the region’s biodiversity can be found in this article.

A Guide to the Robertson Rainforest publication

Robertson Rainforest is a priority for ecological restoration under NPA’s Thin Green Line, a project that focuses on improving the condition of native vegetation in strategic corridors in the Southern Highlands. Robertson Rainforest is listed as a Threatened Ecological Community under the Biodiversity Conservation Act and as Critically Endangered under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act. An important resource for the project is the recently released 2nd edition of A Guide to the Robertson Rainforest by the Robertson Environment Protection Society. This revised guide was launched on 15 May 2021. To find out more about the book and where you can get your copy, click here.
