Project: Cassinia Collaboration

Subject: research, conservation

Since 2018 A Rocha Australia has been partnering with Cassinia Environmental, a leader in landscape restoration and biodiversity protection.

Cassinia Environmental owns and manages many rural properties across Australia, working to restore, reconnect and protect Australia’s natural ecosystems and endeavouring to see all of Australia’s national parks reconnected through biodiversity-based revegetation projects. Cassinia is the largest private land covenanter in Victoria and has delivered over 105 landscape-scale projects across four states. 

A Rocha Australia members and supporters participate in BioBlitzes, endangered species assessments, tree planting and weed control activities on Cassinia sites, helping with the restoration of land and creation of biolinks.
