Case study type
27 May 2013
31 May 2013
Removal of pine wildlings in the high conservation coastal riparian area of Crab Creek, Tin Can Bay coastal community. Pine wildlings out compete Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation (EPBC) Act listed threatened flora species and alter habitat for EPBC threatened fauna species found in the area. Also, exacerbate the risk of increased fire intensity.
Improved habitat of Ramsar Wetland area.
