At Kestrel, we look at land management and biodiversity through the values of:
- Productivity & economics return.
- Ecology & sustainability of natural environment.
- Cultural & social connections, such as heritage & indigenous country.
- Aesthetic & recreational activities.
Key features of the Kestrel landscape which are important to biodiversity include:
- Protection of endangered protected species such as bluegrass communities (Dicanthium queenslandicum), and high value areas such as riparian habitats, waterways & remnant vegetation areas.
- Abundant birdlife & insects, drawn to grasslands of the area, including our namesake, the Nankeen kestrel.
- Land management including stocking levels, weed & chemicals management, along with sustaining capital to maintain & improve the property over time.
