Seeding Native Grassland Restoration

Native vegetation and specifically grassy woodland plant associations have been poorly conserved or highly modified in most areas of the Adelaide Mount Lofty Ranges (AMLR). They were recognised federally as endangered by the Australian Nature Conservation Agency in March 1993. There is little connectivity between the few patches of grassy woodland remaining. Past attempts to link or restore these areas have primarily focused on over storey trees and shrubs rather than the species rich ground flora of herbaceous plants and grasses.

Grassland Restoration

Role in biodiversity

Native grasses are an essential component of these ecosystems and play a critical role in maintaining soil health, reducing erosion, and supporting a wide range of wildlife. Restoring these grasses can help to mitigate the negative impacts of habitat loss and fragmentation by providing essential resources for native animals and insects, including food, shelter, and breeding sites.

Moreover, native grasses are adapted to local climate and soil conditions, and as such, they require less water, fertilizer, and other inputs than non-native grasses. This means that restoring native grasses can also have significant economic benefits by reducing the cost of land management and improving productivity on farms and other land-use systems.

Restoring native grasses also has important cultural and social benefits, as it can help to reconnect people with the land and traditional knowledge of the local environment. This can help to promote community engagement and education, fostering a deeper appreciation and understanding of the natural world.

United Nations: Sustainable Development Goals

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a set of 17 interconnected goals established by the United Nations in 2015. The SDGs provide a comprehensive framework for addressing the world's most pressing economic, social, and environmental challenges.

Global impact groups play a crucial role in supporting the SDGs by creating mechanisms to mobilise resources, collaborate with stakeholders, and drive collective action toward achieving the goals. These groups have the capacity to leverage their expertise and resources to make a significant positive impact.
