11027: An extension of vegetation to the north-west section of Lake Claremont to restore indigenous woodland
Lake Claremont is a conservation category wetland and Bush Forever site. It is also one of the few wetland areas left in the western suburbs.
The lake acts as a flora and fauna corridor between Kings Park and the coast, and between Bold Park and the Swan River. Both corridors are important flight paths and foraging grounds for the endangered Carnaby's black-cockatoo.
With the help of State NRM Program funding, this project aims to revegetate a substantial area of the north-west boundary to the lake, extending areas previously revegetated through project 10007. Peppermint and tuart woodland, including stands of coastal banksia and parrot bush will be planted to enhance habitat for Carnaby's cockatoo and other species.
