New guidelines will help town planners and developers to protect the habitat of the region’s iconic cassowary and mahogany glider.

Ecological corridors are a vital part of every Council’s new planning scheme. Good planning makes sure that their habitat is conserved and includes ecological corridors for wildlife to move across the landscape.
