SIGNIFICANT ECOLOGY of the TWEED REGION

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.
