Yarra4Life is a collaborative project. Getting conservation results on the ground requires cooperation between landholders, government, industry, community groups, non-government organisations, Indigenous groups, corporates and service providers. It is a complex challenge that Yarra4Life is doing its best to make as simple as possible.
Yarra4Life has all the key players from the area working together towards ambitious conservation outcomes. A standout feature of the Yarra4Life Biolink is its multi-partner model, cross sectoral involvement and community backing.
Yarra4Life is facilitated by the Port Phillip & Westernport CMA (PPWCMA) on behalf of its project partners.
Yarra4Life is governed by a Coordination Committee consisting of representatives from 10 partner organisations, plus the PPWCMA.
