Logan opens up to wildlife

Logan has consolidated its reputation as South-East Queensland’s green corridor by securing an additional 87 hectares of land for wildlife conservation.

Nineteen properties have signed up to the Land for Wildlife program in the past year.

Land for Wildlife is a free service that provides landholders both large and small with advice and plans to manage the ecosystem on their property.

In total, 275 landholders have signed up to the program in Logan, ensuring 6450 hectares of land are maximising their environmental sustainability.

Health, Environment and Sustainability Committee chairperson Councillor Lisa Bradley said the increased interest in conservation would benefit Logan.

“Council has supported Land for Wildlife since 1998 and people have also embraced the concept,” Cr Bradley said.

“With more than 6500 hectares of land across the city being closely nurtured by LFW, the future certainly looks green for Logan.

“I’d like to commend the Natural Environment and Sustainability program for its work in promoting LFW and facilitating its phenomenal growth.”

Natural Environment and Sustainability recently completed offset revegetation at Allgas Street, Garoona and Riverdale Park.

More than 14 hectares of environmental offset land has been set aside in the city since March 2016.
