The first step to conserving native vegetation and habitat is often to fence off the vegetation so that the area can be managed as a separate unit and grazing can be controlled.
While protective fencing is important, it is not a simple case of ‘fence and forget’. Having a fence in place will not necessarily mean that the health of the conserved area improves. Active management will be required to maintain or improve the condition of the native vegetation and habitat.
This guide assists landholders to determine the most appropriate management actions that will help to protect and enhance native vegetation and habitat conservation areas on their property. This guide also provides general information on how to implement these actions and suggests some simple monitoring techniques that landholders can adopt. As well as describing various management actions, it provides tips on prioritising actions, and monitoring for change.
