Summary

The project aims to control feral pigs and remove weeds (prickly acacia, rubber vine, hymenachne, parkinsonia and Chinese apple) from three Wetlands of National Significance in the Whitsunday Region (Bowen River): Birralee Pelican Creek, Abbot Point-Caley Valley, and the Proserpine-Goorganga Plain.

Benefits

The project will:
  • ensure wetland areas have the chance to regenerate and offer sanctuary to Australian native vegetation, animals and birds
  • decrease the area dominated by Weeds of National Significance, thereby allowing increased establishment and biodiversity of existing native species, or allowing the existing native species to establish more significant cover.
