The Queensland Murray-Darling Basin includes three major recognised bioregions including the New England Tablelands, the Southern Brigalow Belt and the Mulga Lands.
More than 30 per cent of the Basin contains remnant native vegetation and more than 170 identified ecosystems or vegetation communities. As of January, 2011 the total number of threatened species listed under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act (EPBC) included 18 endangered species, 48 vulnerable species and one species declared as conservation dependent.
QMDC helps to protect and enhance this biodiversity by encouraging land managers to take up voluntary conservation agreements and to actively protect native vegetation from pests and stock damage.
