    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.

    Activities include:

    • control of Bridal creeper along the creekline
    • planting of 500 Allocasuarina (sheoak) seedlings
    • replacing a 3.2km long fence to protect the reserve.
    Investment: $ 10 000
    Delivery organisation: Bush Heritage Australia
    Project duration: February 2014 - December 2014
    Location: Kojonup Bush Heritage Reserve, Mission Road, Shire of Kojonup
