The Mallee CMA has several key areas of focus. These are rolled out through different programs. Each of these programs has dedicated staff and resources. For more information on each program click on the links below:
- The biodiversity of the Mallee has been shaped by a climate of temperature extremes, low rainfall, and underlying geology. The result is a series of unique ecosystems that are significant, particularly for reptiles and birds. This uniqueness combined with historical land clearing for agricultural development has led to a significant number of Mallee flora and fauna species, as well as ecological communities, to be listed as threatened in both Victoria and at a national level.
- It is recognised that there are several threatening processes which impact on the regions asset base that can be directly related to the management (both historical and current) of dryland agricultural land.
