14147: Sydney wattle eradication project: Torndirrup, Robinson, Grasmere – Albany region

    Sydney Golden Wattle (Acacia longifolia) which is found in the Albany area continues to threaten the biodiversity of nearby Torndirrup National Park and Sandpatch Reserve. Biological controls that will not harm other wattle species are not yet available so community involvement in the management and treatment of affected areas is vital.

    This project will build on previous eradication work by engaging with local community and equipping residents and landowners with the tools to successfully treat and control wattles on their own property.

    In-kind contribution: $ 111 900

    Project duration: March 2015 - November 2016
