We are working in partnership with DELWP and the WGCMA, who have
mapped the health and location of native vegetation in the shire.They have also
identified proposed biolinks to join these areas of native bushland.
The biolinks plan will guide future revegetation and remnant protection projects
and provide a strategic approach by identifying where the greatest environmental
return for investment exists.
We would like your feedback on these maps and invite you to a workshop to
identify key linkages from the maps and provide advice on the opportunities
and difficulties in seeing them established on the ground.There will be separate
workshops for each region; Powlett, Anderson Inlet and Coastal Plains regions,
Bass Valley and Waterline communities and Phillip Island workshops.

AS A region that accounts for more than one
fifth of Australia’s dairy production, dairy is a
big part of life in Gippsland.
That’s why Dairy Australia is calling on peo -
ple across Gippsland to nominate their town
as the next Legendairy Capital by sharing their
stories and highlighting the way their town em-
bodies the Legendairy spirit.
Launched in 2015, Dairy Australia’s Legend-
airy Capital program celebrates regional com-
munities around the country by highlighting
how dairy farmers contribute to their town,
their industry and the Australian economy.
Dairy Australia program manager, Suzi
O’Dell, said the program recognises the
strength and resilience of hard-working com-
munities and the vital role dairy farmers play
in building the social fabric of their towns.
“Dairy farmers - and people working across the
dairy supply chain – are at the heart of hundreds of
Australian regional communities,” Ms O’Dell said.
“In 2015, Meeniyan was named the Legend-
airy Capital of the Gippsland dairy region.
“Now we’re back on the road looking for the
next regional Capital of Gippsland which could
also become the overall Legendairy Capital of
Australia for 2017.”
Locals from each of Australia’s eight dairy
regions in Gippsland, south west Victoria, the
Murray region, Tasmania, New South Wales,
South Australia, Western Australia and the Sub-
tropical region are encouraged to nominate their
town for the prestigious title by sharing stories
about what makes their town Legendairy.
One finalist from each of the eight regions will
receive $2500 to invest in a community project
and one of those towns will then go on to secure
the coveted title of Australia’s Legendairy Capi-
tal 2017, receiving an additional grant of $7500
to put towards their community project.
The Foundation for Rural and Regional Re-
newal (FRRR), a not-for-profit organisation
working towards enabling communities to build
their social capital and economic resilience, is
supporting Dairy Australia on this program.
Natalie Egleton, chief executive of FRRR said
everyday farmers juggle the demands of their op-
erations with the needs of the local community.
“The Legendairy Capital program celebrates
this commitment by pulling together as one,
and finding ways to build robust communities
that will endure and prosper.
“FRRR is pleased to be able to support Dairy
Australia in this important initiative,” Ms Egle-
Nominations are open until 5pm on April 10,
2017. For more information on Australia’s Leg-
endairy Capital program, including details on
how to nominate, visit http://www.legendairy.
