This project aims to enhance the condition and connectivity of Gondwana and riparian habitat in the Duck Creek area. With funding provided through the Australian Government’s Caring for our Country program, and with support from Scenic Rim Regional Council, SEQ Catchments is providing support to grazing landholders to help protect and buffer World Heritage Area vegetation, enhance condition and connectivity of remnant and regrowth native vegetation, and improve soil condition and water quality.
This project contributes to these overall program goals through supporting the landholder to undertake more ecologically sustainable land management by reducing threats caused by weeds, unmanaged stock access and inappropriate fire regimes.
The project area contains remnant and regrowth native vegetation and a mix of Regional Ecosystems (RE), including two ‘of concern’: RE 12.8.16 (narrow-leaved ironbark and forest red gum woodland) and RE 12.8.4 (vine forest with hoop pine).
This project will improve connectivity and enhance the condition of native vegetation through the following activities:
The landholder is committed to monitoring and the maintenance of project outcomes including:
