Council manages around 9162 hectares of natural area reserves, riparian corridors and road reserves with high biodiversity values. These areas contain remnant native vegetation and high-value regrowth vegetation and provide significant habitat for native wildlife. Remnant and high-value regrowth native vegetation can be used to assign value to ecosystems.
