Nature Conservation

Discover the diversity and beauty of nature in our city. We are responsible for managing significant areas of native vegetation:

  • in bushland reserves
  • along waterways
  • on the coast.

These natural areas are home to a wide range of native plants and provide important habitat for native wildlife or just a safe place for them to find shelter while they travel from place to place.

In our city, like most of the Adelaide and Mount Lofty Ranges region, native vegetation has been cleared for agriculture, industry, roads, railways, ports and towns. Only 9% of our original native vegetation has survived. This makes it even more important to protect what is left.
