14089: Protecting on-farm remnant vegetation in the West Midlands area: stage three

    The West Midlands region has exceptional species richness, particularly in and near the Mt Lesueur National Park and areas surrounding Eneabba.

    Much of the vegetation in the region is low heath or scrub heath and has long been recognised as important. It also provides habitat and a feed source for the endangered Carnaby's Black Cockatoo.

    This project is stage three of works aimed at protecting remaining remnant vegetation on private property, with the long-term aim of creating vegetated linkages throughout the region with national parks and reserves.

    This project will work with land managers to install fencing to protect remnant vegetation and revegetated areas, and to weed and revegetate degraded and cleared areas to improve and create habitat and movement corridors.
