12123: Revegetation of a Long Bridge Gully tributary
Long Bridge Gully is a major tributary to the Brockman River.
Overgrazing, clearing and deep drainage in the catchment has caused the river to become saline, threatening biodiversity and agricultural pursuits downstream.
Chittering Landcare Group is working with landholders in the catchment to revegetate creeklines and groundwater recharge areas to reduce the amount of salt entering waterways.
To complement this 3.5 ha of cleared grazing land on a property in Wannamal will be revegetated with the aim of:
- reducing salinity levels in the waterway
- linking existing areas of remnant vegetation
- providing further habitat and food for Carnabys Cockatoos nesting in powderbark wandoo on the site
