11045: Tenterden bushland vegetation and wetland conservation – Gondwana link
With the help of State NRM Program funding, this project aims to fence remnant vegetation and conserve wetlands on four farms near Tenterden.
These remnant vegetation and wetland areas are of high conservation significance, containing rare and threatened flora and fauna populations. Conservation of these areas will assist in the establishment of eco-linkages along priority areas connecting the Stirling Range National Park and the Mt Lindesay and Mt Roe national parks.
