    Foreshore vegetation surrounding the Wilson Inlet provides valuable habitat for waterbirds and other fauna, and acts as a bio-filter, reducing the flow of nutrients and pollutants into the inlet.

    Maintenance of this natural vegetation buffer is therefore vital to the health and sustainability of this waterway.

    Priority areas for foreshore revegetation were identified as part of the Shire of Denmark's Wilson Inlet Foreshore Reserves Management Plan 2008.

    With the help of State NRM Program funding, this project will conduct planting activities at these sites using propagated native plants grown from local provenance seed.

    Investment: $ 8 010
    In-kind contribution: $ 2 800
    Other contribution: $ 6 493
    Delivery organisation: Shire of Denmark
    Project duration: September 2011 - June 2012
    Location: Wilson Inlet foreshore reserve, west of Denmark river mouth
