Summary

This project aims to remove weeds (including lantana, hymenachne and rubber vine) from a 500ha site near Bowling Green Bay. Fences will be installed to prevent stock from damaging the natural barriers which stop tidal inundation (and subsequent salt water damage) to the site. The site provides a freshwater sedge area critical to the surrounding national park and Ramsar listed Bowling Green Bay Conservation Park and provides almost the entire freshwater feeding grounds of both ‘permanent’ and migratory waterfowl and other avian species.
