Flora and Fauna of Berowra Valley

Berowra Valley is home to at least 517 flowering plant species as well as 168 birds, 19 native mammals, 38 reptiles and 14 frog species – a total of 756 species. While this total may seem high, it is a small number relative to the total number of invertebrates, moss, lichen, fungus and bacterial species in the same area. This total is currently unknown but a conservative guess would be 5000 species. Although most of these organisms are small to microscopic, they are vital to the ecosystem processes such as nutrient recycling, energy flow, pollination, seed dispersal, the disposal of wastes and decomposition that maintain the beauty and the function of the Park.

We contribute to citizen science projects that research and protect our most vulnerable species.
