"We have made amazing discoveries about the biodiversity of this area, the forest and it's ecology, and we've recognised that it's a critically important place for endangered species, like Leadbeater's Possum"
David Lindenmayer, 17 September 2014
David Lindenmayer and his team have undertaken ecological research in the tall ash forests of Victoria's Central Highlands for over 32 years. The science is compelling. Research has shown us that an increased reserve system to preserve the critically endangered Leadbeater’s Possum and other species will slow the decline of hollow bearing trees, restore natural fire regimes & reduce high severity burns, produce large old trees, maximise water yields and help provide a major economic boost for Victoria.
