10 June 2015
Restoration and regeneration of high value ecosystem through weeding and stock exclusion.
Land manager will build a stock exclusion fence around 1ha area of Littoral Rainforest on his property for protection and restoration. The landholder will also treat target weed species with herbicide over a 2ha area.
This property lies adjacent to the mapped "frequently connected" Burrum Basin Hydrological Connections to the Great Barrier Reef. Flows from this property reach the "very frequently connected" Burrum Basin Hydrological Connections to the Great Barrier Reef.
A reduction of sediment entering the aquatic environment, healthy and more resilient natural vegetation communities in riparian areas and adjacent to wetlands, reduction in weed infestation and transport of weeds to riparian areas of adjacent waterways.
