A new CAUL Hub report shows how Australian cities are implementing novel solutions to conserve urban biodiversity – from reusing hollow trees that would otherwise be lost, to creating local flora and fauna field guides for residents.
This national inventory of local actions is the first of its kind in Australia. The two-part report summarises common barriers and enablers of urban biodiversity conservation, outlines opportunities and challenges for undertaking future action, documents the extent to which Indigenous perspectives are currently considered in urban biodiversity conservation and provides recommendations for future Indigenous engagement.
