RESTORING LEAKY LANDSCAPES: designing ways to restore ‘dysfunctional landscapes’. These are landscapes that, due to past landuses, no longer retain water as they used to. They are not as productive, resilient or diverse as they once were but need to be to enable them to adapt to climate change. 

Conservation of threatened species such as Malleefowl, Dainty Phebalium, Grassy Woodlands and declining woodland birds such as Diamond Fire-tail and Hooded Robin rely restoring the health of the habitats they rely on.
