14201: Protection of remnant vegetation in the Shire of Kent.
The Shire of Kent and district area is an important regional biodiversity link between the Fitzgerald biosphere (including Lake Magenta Nature Reserve) in the east and the Darling Range woodlands and state forest in the west. This 'link' consists of a series of lakes and associated large remnant vegetation patches, which provide vital habitat and preserves vulnerable flora and fauna, starting at Lake Dumbleyung and Lake Coyrecup/Ewleyamartup (Coblinine River) in the west, then moving further east to the Lake Chinocup lakes system and finally moving further east to Lake Bryde and Magenta systems.
This project aims to exclude livestock from patches of large and valuable remnant vegetation habitat (in reserve and on private land) in the Lake Chinocup, Gnowanalup Gully, Nyabing and Lefroy catchments. Fencing will be installed at selected sites to allow natural regeneration of understory species and revegetation to create bushland wildlife corridors.
