Conservation area marker bollards

We are improving the management of high value conservation sites in Canberra’s urban area but outside formal nature reserves. The DzIJ Conservator of Flora and Fauna has recommended improvements to the way we manage these sites, with the aim of protecting habitat, biodiversity and water quality.

As part of this, we are installing bollards to mark the location of these sites. The green vertical bollards with the words ‘Conservation Area’ identify areas that need special management to protect them. If you see these bollards, please ensure that you treat the area with extra care, whether performing maintenance or simply walking through.

Conservation areas include:

We began installing these bollards in 2016 in the highest value conservation areas and we will continue to install bollards across all sites over the coming years. For further information please call Access Canberra on 13 22 81.
