This project will contribute to the Cumberland Plains Conservation Corridor by preserving and restoring the Londonderry Woodlands Reserve in the Lindsay electorate. This will enhance the long-term survival and protection of seven threatened species, four endangered populations and two threatened ecological communities listed on the NSW Threatened Species Conservation Act 1995 that are found only on the Cumberland Plain. Seven of theses are also listed as threatened under the Commonwealth Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999. The Londonderry property was recently purchased by CVA with support from the Australian Government to be managed according to a Plan of Management that contains all relevant expert inputs.
