10020: Fowler’s fencing project – linking Moresby Range and Chapman River
Landholders and agencies are partnering to protect and rehabilitate a stream connecting the Moresby Range and Chapman River wildlife corridor.
With the help of State NRM Program funding, about 2.5 km of creek will be fenced, creating a corridor that will be rehabilitated to prevent erosion and enable flora and fauna to move between these two major conservation areas.
This project is an example of individual landholders cooperating with government agencies to contribute to landscape-scale restoration.
