Climate Adaptation and Biodiversity in Victoria.

The preservation of biodiversity values and enhancement of environmental resilience is of vital importance for the function of ecosystems, persistence of wildlife, public health, agriculture, urban amenity and visitor attraction. Changes to temperature, rainfall, storm and fire patterns associated with climate change are already putting species and ecosystems at risk.

Adapt Grampians together with the State Wide Integrated Flora and Fauna Teams (SWIFFT) held a forum on 22 June 2023 to explore work being done to respond and adapt to these pressures on biodiversity.
