13070: Kojonup Reserve biodiversity enhancement
The 398 hectare Kojonup Reserve is the largest reserved area of wandoo woodland in the Kojonup region.
Wandoo woodlands were once extensive throughout much of south-western Australia, but have now been extensively cleared for dryland agriculture.
The reserve, acquired by Bush Heritage Australia 18 years ago, is highly valued by the Kojonup community and contains a number of rare and threatened species.
This project contributes to the conservation of translocated Red-tailed phascogale in the reserve by enhancing its preferred habitat.
- control of Bridal creeper along the creekline
- planting of 500 Allocasuarina (sheoak) seedlings
- replacing a 3.2km long fence to protect the reserve.
