13112: Protecting Trayning’s biodiversity
Trayning is located in the north-eastern wheatbelt, 260 kilometres east of Perth.
In the mostly cleared landscape, the town's golf course is one of few precious patches of remnant vegetation in the shire.
The golf course provides habitat to local plants and animals including large flocks of red-tailed cockatoo that visit the site each year. Unfortunately it is also a haven for cats, rabbits and foxes.
This project aims to control feral animals and improve habitat for wildlife in remnant vegetation at the golf course.
Project activities include:
- spraying of weeds and baiting of feral animals throughout the 80ha site
- installation of 18 interpretive signs
- planting of 20 000 seedlings in revegetation works (including a school planting day)
- nest box workshop to increase local knowledge of plants and animals.
