Merri Creek fauna

A range of creatures call the Merri Creek corridor home – from blue banded bees, to water rats to rock wallabies. Much of our work is about supporting the biodiversity that will allow these populations to survive and grow including two endangered species – the Golden Sun Moth and the Growling Grass Frog.
