    Declining rainfall and lower water levels have exposed large areas of mudflat at Bibra Lake. These areas have been colonised by the invasive aquatic weedTypha orientalis(bulrush), resulting in a loss of native wetland habitat.

    This project will remove the typha infestation and revegetate with native species with the aim of restoring habitat for Oblong turtles and improving ecological linkages throughout Bibra Lake Reserve.

    Fauna activity and vegetation establishment following restoration will be monitored using transects and photo-monitoring points.

    Three community workshops will be offered focusing on propagation, fauna and Noonygar connection. Workshops will support community capacity building and harness on-going volunteer efforts.

    Investment: $ 24 205
    Delivery organisation: Cockburn Wetlands Education Centre
    Project duration: January 2013 - July 2013
    Location: Bibra Lake Reserve, Beeliar Regional Park
