    Paganoni Swamp Reserve is one of the most significant reserves in the metropolitan region south of the Swan River and a priority site for conservation. A Bush Forever site, the reserve is recognised as regionally significant woodland to be retained and protected forever.

    The central wetland is surrounded by tuart and mixed banksia and sheoak woodlands and provides habitat for a large number of native animals, including breeding and foraging sites for the endangered Carnaby's Cockatoo.

    Through this project, Friends of Paganoni Swamp, in partnership with the City of Rockingham and South East Regional Centre for Urban Landcare will spray weeds on the boundary of the reserve to reduce their spread into the bushland.

    Monitoring plots and photo points will be used to monitor the effectiveness and determine whether any follow-up spraying is required.

    Investment: $ 17 000
    Delivery organisation: Friends of Paganoni Swamp
    Project duration: November 2012 - December 2013
    Location: Road reserve north of Paganoni Swamp Reserve, Karnup
