Summary

This project is the initial step in a longer term plan to revegetate 3 of 10ha of littoral rainforest/coastal vine thicket (LRF/CVT) that  was incorporated into Poona National Park. The main aim of this project is to obtain seeds of local provenance, i.e. from LRF/CVT in the region, in order to undertake the revegetation next financial year.

Benefits

The benefits of this project in addition to restoring a portion of this critically endangered ecological community are enhancement of critical habitat and refugia for Nationally significant fauna species, enhancement of connectivity between areas of this ecological community to the north and south of this site, enhanced buffering capacity of the foreshore in this area from erosion and weed control. The latter two benefits also contribute to protecting the Great Sandy Strait Ramsar site.
