Restoring underrepresented ecological communities
This project is now complete.
The project focused on recovering the most threatened ecological communities in the region and a suite of threatened species.
Several new populations of threatened plants were established and seed from threatened flora was banked in the Adelaide Botanic Gardens.
The project utilised national and regional recovery plans (where they exist) to guide activities to conserve threatened species, and produced several regional recovery plans, as well as an Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act referral, to guide future conservation efforts.
In line with the management action targets of our regional NRM Plan, this project included:
- improving native vegetation
- managing Ramsar wetlands
- managing threatened species
- improving habitat connectivity
- reviewing species of concern
- increasing community awareness
- supporting biodiversity on private land
- wetland nominated sites.
This project is supported by South East Natural Resources Management Board, through funding from the Australian Government’s National Landcare Programme.
