    The town of Moora and surrounds are within an important bird area, identified by Birds Australia as significant for the conservation of the endangered Carnaby's black-cockatoo.

    Moora was once the site of a salmon gum forest. However, through broadacre farming and associated land clearing, few pockets of remnant vegetation suited to cockatoo habitat remain.

    With the help of State NRM Program funding, this project will revegetate key sites within the shire with suitable food and nesting species for the Carnaby's cockatoo. Seed from local Proteaceous species and salmon gum will be used to produce seedlings for planting.

    The seedlings will be grown by Moora's CY O'Connor TAFE nursery, and then planted out by the local community during the shire's annual Tree Day.

    In addition to revegetation, bollards will be used to prevent vehicular access on identified sites and allow proper growth and regeneration of vegetation.
