Control of GRT in Rodds Bay
Case study type
21 November 2013
31 May 2014
The project involves weed control Giant Rats Tail grass (GRT) in Rodds Bay - part of the High Conservation Value Aquatic Ecosystem (HCVAE) of Bustard Bay. The property is 500ha in size surrounded by Eurimbula National Park and is managed for conservation. The site was identified as a major source of GRT seed at the Bustard Bay Steering Committee meeting in May 2013.
Funding at this time will ensure a co-ordinated approach to control throughout the area. There is a known Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation (EPBC) Act-listed water mouse (Xeromys myoides) habitat at the site and throughout the region. Water mouse habitat is potentially threatened by loss of habitat through weed invasion.
