Summary

This project will focus on the eradication of lantana to allow natural regeneration to occur. The effectiveness of the project will be monitored using photo-points and vegetation surveys, prior to and upon completion of the weed control. Data will also be collected to enable a comparison between the extent of weed cover and native vegetation, as well as providing an indication of the occurrence of natural regeneration.

Benefits

This project will:
  • contribute towards the improved effectiveness of the wetlands to filter nutrients and capture water by reducing the presence of weed species enabling the regeneration of native plants in the reserve to occur
  • improve habitat for local resident fauna as well as migratory species such as shorebirds.
