Ensuring that all South Australians are connected to nature is at the heart of Green Adelaide’s vision. This will be achieved by working with and supporting local government and the community to maintain and enhance Adelaide’s unique and biologically diverse environment.
Helping these native flora and fauna to thrive is critical to ensuring a healthy, sustainable and resilient Adelaide for generations. Unfortunately, the introduction of pests, the clearance of habitats and the impacts of climate change create challenges that need to be overcome.
Green Adelaide will fund local government activities and provide grants to organisations and the community to deliver projects that support and create more habitat for native plants and animals across the urban area. It will support community activities such as the creation of bee hotels, lizard lounges and butterfly gardens, as well as recovery projects for threatened species.
