Linking the Mornington Peninsula Landscape (LMPL)
Linking the Mornington Peninsula Landscape (LMPL) is an initiative that aims to reconnect fragmented remnants of indigenous vegetation to create wildlife corridors (biolinks) on the Mornington Peninsula. LMPL assists Mornington Peninsula Landcare groups and landholders to develop collaborative local biolink plans for catchments across the Peninsula. These plans focus on works required to achieve the biolink on private properties, but also consider public land in the biolink area.
Designed as a 4-year project, LMPL is being undertaken in 10 different regions on the Mornington Peninsula.
In 2018 (Year 4) plans for Manton and Stony Creek Landcare area and Merricks Coolart Catchment Landcare area will be developed in collaboration with those landcare groups.
In 2017 (Year 3) biolink plans were produced for Red Hill South Landcare area and Dunns Creek Landcare area.
In 2014-15 (Year 2) biolink plans were developed for Watson Creek Landcare area (northern Peninsula - Baxter, Somerville, Frankston South), and Sheepwash Creek Landcare area (Red Hill, Dromana South).
In 2014, a pilot biolink was developed for the Tuerong-Mooroduc area, near Devilbend Reserve.
