    13111: Using biodiversity corridors to connect remnant vegetation in Mt Marshall

    This remnant patch of wodjil thicket in the Shire of Mt Marshall will be protected and connected to other nearby remnants as part of this project.
    This remnant patch of wodjil thicket in the Shire of Mt Marshall will be protected and connected to other nearby remnants as part of this project.

    Like many Shires in Western Australia, much of the clearing in the Shire of Mt Marshall tended to be from fenceline to fenceline.

    This means that remaining patches of remnant vegetation are poorly connected.

    Connected vegetation provides more biodiversity value than isolated fragments.

    This project will supply four land managers in the Shire with seedlings for revegetation projects that connect or increase the size of existing remnant vegetation.

    Fences will be installed to protect revegetated sites and baiting programs will be conducted to reduce the burden of feral animals.

    Investment: $ 25 000
    Delivery organisation: Shire of Mt Marshall
    Project duration: February 2014 - April 2015
    Location: Shire of Mt Marshall
