Summary

The project site is approximately 500ha in size and is used for grazing and conservation purposes. The project involves weed control and an infra-red camera to enable the landholder to monitor dog activity.
The project site forms part of the Bustard Bay High Conservation Value Aquatic Ecosystem (HCVAE) containing salt pan and salt marsh; mapped water mouse habitat (listed as vulnerable under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation (EPBC) Act) and shorebird roosting sites. The area is home to the Long nosed potoroo (Potorous tridactylus) and the Black-breasted button quail (Turnix melanogaster) listed as vulnerable under the EPBC Act.

Benefits

An integrated approach to weed and pest control is considered the most effective. This project will increase the number of landholders in the Bustard Bay HCVAE who are implementing a strategic weed and pest control program.
