Biodiversity corridors connect areas of bushland and the natural vegetation that are separated by human activities such as roads, housing and industrial zones.  These areas allow native animals, birds and insects to travel safely between the green patches as they forage for food, shelter and find mates.  These connections furthermore allow for seeds and pollen to be dispersed allowing plants to grow and thrive. 
Council regularly offers FREE native plants to all local residents to increase their backyard biodiversity. Native plant giveaways occur in autumn and spring, and are advertised on Council’s Facebook page and in the local papers.

This BSP has been prepared to ensure that Council is best able to meet its statutory obligations regarding biodiversity protection, as well as ensuring that the wealth of biodiversity that exists in Bankstown is protected for future generations. This BSP replaces the Bankstown Biodiversity Strategy of 2002 and links to the purpose and objectives of the Bankstown Community Plan and City Directions.
