    The Moresby Range in the Shire of Chapman Valley is an important biodiversity corridor that links the Chapman River to high conservation reserves to the north.

    The Range is impacted by:

    • uncontrolled grazing
    • weeds
    • feral animals
    • wind and water erosion.

    Qualified indigenous bush regenerators will be used in this project to help protect and regenerate highly degraded areas; areas of high-quality remnant vegetation; and previously revegetated sites. They will:

    • control weeds in high quality remnant vegetation and areas of strategic revegetation to maximise growth rates and encourage natural regeneration processes
    • use smoke water and direct seeding to continue to enhance previous revegetation works
    • revegetate cleared and highly degraded areas with native seedlings.
    Investment: $ 50 000
    Delivery organisation: Shire of Chapman Valley
    Project duration: December 2012 - September 2013
    Location: Moresby Range in the south-west portion of the Shire of Chapman Valley
