Summary

This project will fund fencing the frontage to Colosseum Creek on this property to better manage stock and exclude them from the riparian rainforest and the creek. The project also includes control of weed species such as Lantana and African Love Grass (ALG) to reduce the fire hazard to the fire-sensitive riparian vegetation.

Benefits

  • This project aligns with 'A framework to identify priority hydrological connections to the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area'.
  • Protection of a threatened ecological community under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC)
  • Improved stock management will assist with improved pasture condition and coverage of the soil surface, thereby reducing erosion and sediments loads entering waterways, and ultimately reducing 'plumes' during flood events.
