Summary

This project involves the implementation of riparian fencing along the Nebine Creek, near Cunnamulla, on the already established nature refuge at ‘Murra Murra’. This fence would be resilient to pest and grazing animals, therefore reducing the impact of grazing pressure on the fragile riparian areas and improving water quality. It will assist in natural vegetation regeneration and exclude known predators of the koala, such as wild dogs.

Benefits

This project will:
  • improve the overall stability of the ecosystem.

Native flora and fauna will regenerate and flourish, increasing soil stability and water quality.
