14148: Revegetating Rose Shanks Reserve within a rabbit proof fenced area
Rose Shanks Reserve forms part of the Jandakot Regional Park and Bush Forever Site 390 and is an important ecological linkage. The 30ha reserve located in the suburb of Banjup is under increasing threat from urban development. The Department of Parks and Wildlife's Banksia Restoration Annual Report 2013 highlights Rose Shanks Reserve as a significantly important area for restoration as part of the Jandakot Airport expansion offsets project.
This project aims to increase the overall resilience of the reserve by installing limestone firebreaks to prevent dieback entering the reserve; installing fencing along boundaries of the reserve; restoring a small (0.46ha) completely degraded area within the reserve; holding workshops to build community awareness of dieback, bird life and Aboriginal heritage of the site.
