Biodiversity in Brisbane
Brisbane is Australia's most biodiverse capital city with the highest diversity of native plants and wildlife of any other capital city. Despite more than 100 years of European settlement and being a part of one of the fastest growing regions in Australia, we still have 63 different vegetation communities with over 800 species of wildlife, and over 2500 species of native plants.
Brisbane City Council is committed to protecting, managing and enhancing Brisbane's biodiversity values. The Brisbane Vision includes the aspiration to maintain a clean and green city that continues to support a high level of biodiversity.
