13074: Forests to Stirling Gondwana Link: From plans to action

    Gondwana Link stretches across 1000 kilometres of the south-west, from the cool, high rainfall forests and wetlands in the west, to the semi-arid woodlands and mallee country bordering the Nullarbor Plain in the east.

    The Forests to Stirling Gondwana Link is part of this area, connecting the Walpole Wilderness Area to the Stirling Ranges. The area has been identified as a significant wildlife and nature conservation corridor.

    A Conservation Area Plan has been developed for the region that identifies key assets, threats and actions that need to be taken. This project will implement on-ground actions to help implement the Plan.

    Activities include:

    • Blackberry control on the Denmark River
    • training landholders and community organisations in monitoring and assessment of key ecological health indicators
    • roadside vegetation weed surveying and control in the Shire of Cranbrook
    • fencing, weeding and revegetating Martagallup Swamp in the Upper Kent catchment
    • installation of eight kilometres of fencing to protect native vegetation.
    Investment: $ 30 000
    Delivery organisation: Green Skills
    Project duration: December 2013 - December 2014
    Location: Forests to Stirling Gondwana Link - various locations in the Shires of Cranbrook, Denmark and Plantagenet
