    Murdoch University's South Street campus has several high-quality remnant vegetation reserves, three of which are part of the Beeliar Regional Park.

    The reserves provide important feeding, roosting and breeding habitat for endangered Black Cockatoos and are home to priority Quendas (bandicoots) and other plants and animals.

    This project aims to protect and enhance these reserves.

    Activities include: 

    • installation of five boot cleaning stations to help protect the reserves from dieback
    • control of highly invasive herbaceous and woody weeds to protect existing vegetation and revegetated areas
    • installation of a watering trough to coax cockatoos away from roadside puddles
    • collection of provenance seed for reserve revegetation works
    • installation of 19 artificial cockatoo nesting tubes.
    Investment: $ 46 000
    Delivery organisation: Murdoch Environmental Restoration Group
    Project duration: January 2014 - December 2014
    Location: Murdoch University, 90 South St, Murdoch
