10044: Greening tributaries of the Pallinup River and promoting landcare in the North Stirlings Pallinup region
Pallinup River, the main waterway of the North Stirlings Pallinup region, boasts an abundance of flora and fauna. Protection of the river and its adjoining tributaries will ensure vegetation can thrive undisturbed and encourage greater species diversity and ecological balance.
With the help of State NRM Program funding, this project aims to protect, conserve and enhance tributaries connected to the Pallinup River. Reconnecting these waterway corridors will assist in reducing the risk of fragmentation and loss of biological resources and ecological processes crucial to the survival of the flora and fauna in the area.
Protective fencing and revegetation using local provenance species will alleviate pressure on existing revegetation from grazing and provide an improved habitat for native flora and fauna.
On-ground works will be complemented by a series of interpretive signs designed and installed by local community groups. The signs will increase public awareness of the importance of preserving our waterways.
