Wall to Wollondilly (W2W), led by Greening Australia, is working to protect, maintain and restore the Wingecarribee River, in the Southern Highlands section of the GER Corridor.
The Wingecarribee River serves as a major wildlife corridor linking the coastal escarpment to the Blue Mountains World Heritage Area and the Central Tablelands.
Extensive clearing in the Southern Highlands has fragmented the landscape and left the river in a highly degraded state, impacting water quality and threatening the future of the river’s many native plants and animals. These include the Platypus and Yellow-Bellied Gliders, as well as a host of threatened plants, woodland birds, microbats and possums.
W2W is working with the local community, farmers and government, to help restore, reconnect and enhance critical habitat for wildlife, reduce the impact of weeds, improve water quality and return the Wingecarribee River to a healthy state. The project builds on past and current planning and projects to create long-term, sustainable change in ecosystem health.
W2W is supported by the New South Wales Government through the Environmental Trust.
