Dorodong Indigenous Protected Area (IPA) is on the Gumbaynggirr people’s traditional lands and covers 85 hectares. Dorodong is on the Dorrigo Plateau in the Northern Tablelands of New South Wales. The area protects several waterways, a waterfall and rainforests with links to ancient Gondwanaland (NIAA, Dorodong IPA).
Envite Environment have been working with Dorodong Indigenous Protected Area (IPA) on rehabilitating Aboriginal significant land as part of Jaliigirr Landscape Connections in the Great Eastern Ranges’ Bush Connect Project. The project is within an identified priority landscape area of the Dorrigo region that will extend and improve the connectivity of our natural landscapes.
The Jaliigirr Biodiversity Alliance manages organisations that work together across all land tenures and communities to improve landscape connectivity. The focus of on-ground works is bush regeneration with some areas of revegetation and complemented with capacity building activities. This project has been assisted by the New South Wales Government through its Environmental Trust.
