    Stock proof fences will protect 159ha of remnant vegetation, riparian areas and newly vegetated areas.

    This project shows the ongoing commitment from local landholders to protect and enhance remnant vegetation, waterways, and aquatic spaces within the region. Each of these projects also aligns with the strategies and goals outlined in the 'A Resilient Blackwood Basin in a Changing Climate: Concept Plan' developed by the Blackwood Basin Group and its associated Landcare groups.

    Works in this region are building on a major project "Restoring Lake Ewlyamartup" and associated catchment works, including 200,000 seedlings over four years. These projects are also guided by the Daping Creek catchment planning that took place in 2006.

    Additionally, Red-tailed Phascogales have been recorded in the Daping Creek and North Ewlyamartup catchments in 2014, and the works undertaken in this project directly support habitat conservation and enhancement for these and other native animals in the region.
