Run under the auspices of the Brisbane City Council, the Habitat Brisbane program helps community groups restore natural habitats in parks, remnant bushland, wetlands and along waterways.

Habitat Brisbane groups also help to protect, monitor and increase native flora and fauna populations, especially rare and threatened species. The groups' tasks include:

  • removing weeds and rubbish
  • establishing native plants
  • reporting new sightings of wildlife including squirrel gliders, koalas, wallabies, microbats and boobook owls
  • reducing illegal dumping through community awareness and education

improving the attractiveness of natural areas for visitors
