Australian and Victorian Government status: critically endangered
There was a time when this diverse ecosystem covered much of the 22,000-square-kilometre Victorian Volcanic Plains through western and north-western Victoria. However, today less than 2% of the natural temperate grasslands of the Victorian Volcanic Plains remain.
- weed invasion
- over-growth of invasive grass
- grazing and other agricultural uses.
Where are they found?
Filled with native herbs, grasses, wildflowers and a scattering of shrubs and trees, these unique grasslands are now confined to a few small remaining patches.
