15030: Protecting and restoring native vegetation within Bremer River Catchment
This project will engage farmers to improve soil health and extend habitat connectivity for wildlife through the protection of remnant vegetation and waterways of the Bremer River catchment within the Fitz-Stirling corridor of the GondwanaLink Project.
Creek lines and waterways that contain remnant vegetation on
agricultural land within the Biosphere Zone of cooperation remain
disease free from introduced diseases and therefore provides a long
term, viable and sustainable environment for the native flora and
fauna to interact, complimenting the regions rich
This project will protect creek lines and waterways and re-vegetation areas from stock incursion and allow natural re-generation to take place improving soil structure and stability. Areas of little or no ground cover will be re-vegetated to prevent further risk of soil erosion, salinity and waterway degradation.
