From 2017 to 2020 BFS Landcare received grants from the Lower Moorabool Bio-link Project (funded by the Victorian Government’s Community and Volunteer Action Grants 2018 Program) and the 20 Million Trees Program (part of the Australian Government’s National Landcare Program). These grants supported weed control and bird surveys in the Dog Rocks Flora and Fauna Sanctuary, as well as fencing and planting in the Honey Woodland Bio-link along the Dog Rocks Road.

BFS Landcare members completed the Honey Woodland Bio-link in September 2021. We hope this bio-link will extend the habitat of indigenous flora and fauna, and enable them to travel south cross-country to grassy woodlands near the Barwon River. This extension of their habitat and food supply should help ensure their survival.
