Creating, improving and protecting habitat on private land

Vegetation on private land plays an important role in the ongoing survival of our city’s wildlife. Like jigsaw pieces in a big puzzle, blocks of private land act as links or stepping stones with our public estate and other private properties, to create wildlife corridors and large areas of habitat that our wildlife can thrive in.

The City offers several schemes through its Conservation Partnerships Program (CPP) to support landholders wanting to learn more about the plants and animals on their property and how to encourage native habitat.

Have Your Say – Conservation Partnerships

Stay in touch and have your say about conservation on the Gold Coast.

Have your say


The Gold Coast is one of Australia’s most biodiverse cities.

A large proportion of the natural areas across the city are on private properties. These properties are vital to the conservation of wildlife and threatened species from Currumbin Valley to Cedar Creek, from the hinterland to the coast.

Join other private landholders across the Gold Coast in conserving and restoring our natural environment.
