Summary

This project funds a strategic habitat rehabilitation on-ground works program at Big Woody Island, Duck Island, Picnic Island and Mangrove Point (near Booral) which are significant shorebird roosting sites located in the Great Sandy Straits Ramsar Wetland. Community landcare/bushcare volunteers, Conservation Volunteers Australia, National Green Jobs Corps, Fraser Coast Regional Council, Department of Environment and Resource Management, and Burnett Mary Regional Group are engaged for strategic onground works that will protect and enhance habitat values provided by remnant foreshore and island vegetation. Additionally, the project funds implementation of works to reduce risks to European cultural heritage values (i.e. iconic historical structures on the island such as the wooden lighthouse and rock wall) posed by bushfire.

Benefits

This project improves community knowledge and understanding of the Ramsar shorebirds of Great Sandy Strait islands, while protecting International migratory birds roosting and feeding habitat on the foreshore.
