Summary

This project seeks to improve ecological integrity and functionality to the confluence of local, regional and state environmental corridors which link Brisbane Koala Bushlands, via Tingalpa Wetlands, to Bulimba Creek, the Brisbane River and Moreton Bay. The project seeks to protect and enhance the wetland to improve its use as fauna refuge and help create fauna movement solutions across the landscape. Activities to be undertaken include weed treatment to remove exotic species, undertaking edge-sealing with grasses, herbs and sedges to protect wetland from weed encroachment and edge effects, and carrying out tree planting and mulching to improve canopy structure and resilience.

Benefits

This project will:
  • help communities combat the effects of ‘nature deficit disorder’ by providing learning opportunities for the community to safely explore and understand their natural environment
  • clean out weeds and beautify the local area.
