Unique groups of native plants are known as Ecological Communities.
They are important for providing clean healthy air, water and
soil and for providing a healthy environment for threatened plants and animals.
Ecological Communities can become endangered from
encroachment, degradation and fragmentation.
The Tweed region has a high percentage of these very important ecological communities compared to the rest of NSW.
