The Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) has taken a major step to prevent the extinction of the threatened Southern Shepherd's Purse (Ballantinia antipoda) by growing the plant in Tallarook State Forest near Broadford, 80 kilometres away from the only known wild population in the world.
Toilet facilities at popular camping reserves across north east Victoria have been improved, including the Katie Peters' Reserve, near Mitta Mitta.
The Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning advises and supports the Minister for Environment, Climate Change and Water, the Minister for Local Government and the Minister for Planning.
