Biodiversity

Biodiversity is the variety of all species on earth. It is the different plants, animals and microorganisms that exist. Parramatta's biodiversity can be found in our bushland areas, our rivers and creeks as well as our built environment with over 600 species of plants and around 230 animal species recorded in the area.

"Life in our City" is City of Parramatta's Biodiversity Strategy 2015 - 2025, developed to protect our local environment. This strategy provides a framework to ensure biodiversity is conserved whilst recognising land use along with social, health and economic issues within our Local Government Area.
