Summary

On-ground works will treat Lantana and Cat's Claw Creeper on 4,500 hectares to assist the land managers to gain control for future management and where possible eradication of weed species on a collective area of 10,500 ha. As a result of the prevailing weather systems in Queensland since late 2010, access to the project area has been engulfed by Lantana camara (Lantana), Dolichandra unguis-cati (Cat's Claw Creeper) and Sporobolus pyramidalis (Giant Rat's Tail Grass).
This rapid expansion of invasive species populations now poses a major hazard to water quality because of the loss of filtering groundcover and exposure of the topsoil to erosion from groundwater.

Benefits

In a landscape management context, this project encompasses the headwaters of the Baffle Basin. Additionally, these works will afford greater protection to a range of threatened species including Macadamia jansenii, Bosistoa transversa, Cupaniopsis shirleyana, Cycas magacarpa, Medicosma elliptica, Triunia robusta, and Xanthostemon oppositifolius.
