Biodiversity and Conservation | Department of Planning, Industry and Environment

DPIE

We are an Australian Government department. We work to protect and strengthen our agriculture, water resources, the environment and our heritage.

We celebrate Biodiversity Month every September and promote the importance of:

  • connecting with nature and
  • caring for nature in all its diversity – its biodiversity!

Nature is valuable and we need nature. It provides the building blocks for our survival, such as food, clean air, water, and shelter. Nature also supports our health and wellbeing, and our economy. And while we need nature, nature also needs us.
